Oil on canvas 36X48″
Last week I got this painting back from Evermore where I had it professionally photographed so I can have a high quality image for my website and also I will have the option of making giclee prints from a high resolution image.
Two years ago I sat and watched my daughters ballet class during parent observation week. While I was watching I noticed how the light was pouring in through the window and lighting up the girls hair and backs and also making cool reflections on the floor. So I pulled out my iPhone and took a bunch of pictures. This one was my favorite image. I felt like it captured a small moment in time for me. And shows each girls individuality. They were standing in line listening to their teacher “Miss Jessica” who is a beautiful professional dancer at Ballet Idaho, getting ready to make a dance pass across the floor. At first I only put in the first 5 girls in line but then decided to add the little girl with the skit. So glad I did. I worked on this painting over a period of months last year, it was a real lesson in values and edges. My favorite part of all of it is the floor.
