A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 202: Ballet Shoes

Ballet Shoes

This week was Edgar Degas’ birthday. When I thought of Degas I thought of his iconic paintings of ballerinas. When I thought of those paintings I was reminded that I had used a ballerina as a subject once myself. So for Friday I share a simple post: “Ballet Shoes”, done with chalk pastels from a photo of my co-worker’s daughter at her ballet recital.
