Ballerina #43 recently sold from the Roux and Cyr Gallery in Portland, Maine. Thank you so much, Susan Roux - you are the best! This painting went to the same collector that bought my crab with lemons painting last year. It's so nice and an honor to have clients come back to purchase a second piece and I am thrilled.
Here is #43 (and I can hardly believe that I painted this many ballerinas)!

Kathryn Ragan, a wonderful watercolor artist and one of my long time blog followers, commented to me that my first ballerina at the circus painting reminded her of Toulouse Lautrec's circus themed drawings. So of course, I immediately went to Amazon and found a book originally published in 1953. The book has very little text but each page showcases in beautiful color one of his 39 circus drawings. The reproductions are high quality and it is a a pure delight to leaf through, each drawing showing his deft and incredible draftsmanship.

I am always so delighted to sell a painting. Somehow it validates my work when others appreciate what I do. Yipee - this sale thrilled me!Delete
Congratulations, Susan! That is a lot of ballerina's!ReplyDelete
That is a lot - and she was not the last. I have lost count as somewhere along the way I started to title the ballerina paintings.Delete
Well done! The ballerina looks a bit awed by the big stage or the size of the audience. Love the different textures of the dress and background. What a charming work to have in one's home!ReplyDelete
