Ballerina #14 Tweaked and Finished

I gave Ballerina #14 a final polishing this morning, adding a few highlights and adjusting here and there. I think she is finished now - just in time for St. Patrick's Day! She was really a joy to paint and I hope you enjoy her as well.


  1. She's quite beautiful Susan. Don't you think there are some that you want to go on for ever. Like a good book, you want to know the end, but can't bare it to be finished :))

  2. She's beautiful, Susan. One of your best!!!

  3. Hi, Elizabeth - yes, sometimes I do but usually I am anxious to get on to the next one!
    Thanks, much, Hilda! Your recent water colors are just fabulous!

  4. I'm not sure what you did to her, perhaps soften the "rouge" on her cheek? She's just lovely. Happy St. Patrick's Day to the both of you!

  5. She is absolutely beautiful, there is such a great movement in your ballerinas.

  6. Yes, Susan I did soften her rouge and made her tutu a little more ruffly - nohting much, really. Hope your St. Patrick's Day was a good one! We had 2 inches of snow here!
    Thank you greatly, Jane!
