Well Katie you can tell that ballet has been very much a part of your life as the poses that you do are just so perfect, the angle of the foot etc.

Intensity! Flare! A moment captured in time. You really have shown the athletic ability and stamina that she would need. You can tell she has reached a moment where all her hard work paid off and this is when a pause would happen to emphasize the dramatic moment in her work. Nicely Done.

Dear Eighty, hmmmmmm how wise you are and how clever too. You got it in one. Is she the swan in the water or the lady in the water or on the land?, thanks for your lovely comment dear friend:)

I think Mr Ploos said it for me as well. It is a sort of water ballet to my way of seeing it. My mind says she's an air breathing human type. But she does celebrate the water.

Footnote :D: The lovely mermaid conjured a pair of feet instead of her usual tail. With feet, you can dance in both worlds as it were. . . not to mention the opportunity to accessorize and go shoe shopping. . . from ballet shoes to swim fins. The quest to fill up her wardrobe begins!

Very nice pose. Good composition, Ms Coops. I love how you 'key' your paintings color-wise. It's something of a musical analogy. You work within some parameters you chose per the painting's dictates. The relationships on the canvas work very nicely.

Good comments in this thread.
