In The Wings
This painting was a trip back in time for me to my childhood. I remember taking ballet lessons with my little sister and how frightening it was when we finally had the real recital. It was fun practicing but the sight of the audience brought a new level of fear and realization that this is real that I had never experienced. I made it through because I didn’t dare let my little sister see me scared. She did fine too. So this is more of a painting of a memory. So here are three little ballerinas watching the older girls do their presentation before the little ones go on.
