Ballerina #8

It seems the large ballerinas are getting more ambitious! 16x20 oil on linen board.


  1. Haha- this made me laugh out loud and love it! so ambitious indeed. Love her look of surprise...just a favorite series of all time and I mean that. Art should engage and keep you looking back and all these twinkle toes do just that.

  2. made me laugh too, what a cool series this is, would love to see them all lined up on a wall, Awesome Susan

  3. Great pose. Fantastic work as usual. Nigel.

  4. lol

    How does she land? There's such comedy in these "tutued" ladies. You're really on a roll!

  5. Oh Susan, I love your dancers! They always seem to take themselves so seriously, and yet get into the most laughable positions, I suppose somewhat like all of us.
    Keep on doing what you're doing!!

  6. Awesome and funny at the same time. Beautifully done!

  7. Hi, Kathy - your comments inspire me - thank you so much!
    Thanks David - I took a photo of myself with a few of my ballerinas - its becming crowded in my studio!
    Much appreciated, Nigel!
    Hi, Susan - she lands very delicately - incredible isn't it! :)

    Thanks, Kathryn - they are a delight topaint - and the fun continues!

    Hi, Jane - thank you greatly!
