For some time I’ve been wanting to do some dance paintings again. I have a lot of good research, dating back to the “Arts for the Arts” show we used to do some 14 years ago! The perk of that benefit for the Missouri River Dance Co. was a day long photo shoot for the artists. I painted this little girl back then in a little different pose. I’m thinking of doing yet another of her, in what I hope will be a more contemporary style. We’ll see. “Little Ballerina” is an oil, 20 x 16.
