Ballerina from the Capitol Show

After the show at the Capitol last month, I pondered on what to do with my ballerina and flamenco dancer paintings. I wanted them to be shown in a setting where they would be enjoyed and maybe even inspiring to those that love dance! Kathy at Dance Images in Bowling Green was kind enough to let me hang my "Dancers" at her dance studio. I've also taken pictures of some of the classes there and I have some wonderful shots that hopefully will become paintings.

Here is another ballerina painting from the Capitol Show. I chose this pose because of the light and the gracefulness of the dancer.

This is lovely. I like that you have painted the person from behind, I mean we dont see the face which I dont think we need to see as the painting for me is all about the body shape of the dancer. I especially love the colours in the leotard. Gorgeous X

Thanks so much Ms. Kitten, I wouldn't be able to do this move in a million years!

Beautiful painting. I can feel her graceful move.

I've always favored your ballerina paintings, Rhonda. You really capture their grace and form.

I am requesting that all my readers to refrain from using my grandson's full name in comments from now on. I realized a little late that so many peoiple read blogs and some do not always have the best intent. I'd rather be safe than sorry! Thanks for your understanding!

There is no doubt that you have an incredible talent for painting the human form and the ballerina is definitely your forte. Really lovely work Rhonda.
