Dance


As a dance mom there is always something balletic going on,
even in the summer..

This detail from a sketch turned painting of my daughter's solo
is by my sister-in-law so I just had to post it!

I love how she's caught the shimmer of the fabric!

My daughter is super excited she is now on pointe,
so auntie's next painting can include pointe shoes!

Happy Sunday! and please check out the other's at BlueChairDiary
