Whatever your passion is, do it with all your heart and soul.
I always wanted to take dance lessons when I was a young girl. My parents didn't have the money and I envied the girls that had the opportunity. I was fortunate enough to live across the street from a friend that did take dance lessons and she gave me her old tap and ballet shoes. I would go down our basement and dance my heart out on those concrete floors. Hours at a time, no music, just my imagination and those worn silver dance shoes!
The above painting is a value study, using the dancers. Perhaps, capturing the movement and beauty of the ballerinas.
My passion is art and I want to continue to learn and strive to be better. I will be attending a week long workshop with Kelly Berkey and Kate Thompson in less than a week. I will be studying along with 9 other artists of all levels. Very excited to get away, learn new methods, meet new friends and have some good food.
"You don't stop dancing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop dancing."
See you soon. xo
