Rekindling Enthusiasm

Rekindling Enthusiasm / oil on linen sheet / 16 x  12

A return of one of my ballerinas. She emerged from my brush when I stood in front of a white canvas wondering what to paint.

    1. Not sure how many ballerinas I will paint this time, but they are a great way to shake off the doldrums!

  2. The cries of "Encore" echoed around Blogland ... there fell a silence ... the curtains drew back ... the spotlight shone ... the orchestra struck up ... a roar echoed about blogland, "THE BALLERINAS ARE BACK"

    ..... horses and hounds deferred, bowing low.
