I was inspired to create this painting by a dream. I woke up one night with this image in my head of a painting with ballerina slippers. I shared my vision with a co-worker, turns out she danced for many years and was happy to part with on of her worned slippers. I have little experience in color pencil, but overall, I was happy with the outcome. I was inmersed with all the little details; the stitching, the frayed satin and the see through fabric. This painting got me 1st place at the 2011 Letchworth Arts Festival! I use only the best quality in prints, I never miss the opportunity to place the print next to the original, can’t tell the difference.
Prints available at my Etsy shop, “La Galeria“, stop by today!
What a story these slippers could tell!
