As Gomer used to say on Mayberry - "SHAZAM!" What a wonderful painting. How you managed to make the material in her dress so realistic is just amazing!
Great job. :):):)

Very lovely painting Katie, love the contrast between the gentleness of the figure and the scratched background :):)

This is nothing short of amazing! The contrast of the residual energy in the background and the clear exhaustion of the dancer create a magnificent juxtaposition. Add to that the delicacy of the fabric treatment and you have an image at which to marvel. I really think you reached a new plateau with this one, Katie.

I do enjoy my visits to the ballet that you paint for us.
Such wonderful detail and such accurate poses.

coops,
A truly magical, romantic, pensive work of art this is! An exquisite
Victorian laced encircled ballerina at the conclusion of symphonies
end. This could not be more beautiful! :)

A lovely work coops, from the background, to the dancer desperate to remove her ballet shoes.
They must hurt like hell and she can hardly wait to get them off after each show. :D

Thank you so much Brian for your kind comments and thats just what I was trying to paint, thanks again:) My daughter in law was a professional ballerina and when talking to her she often said how much the feet hurt after the performance.:)

Wow! What a great idea for creating tension in a painting! The contrast of the ballet on top of a background that looks like it's right out of To Sir With Love or A Tree Grows in Brooklyn but especially Fame. . .

You got the mood so well, just as they got that lyric right for people who devote their lives to the Arts. They aspire to much. And the texture of the background is great -- splashy, coarse and textured like a byproduct -- it's as if she is living graffiti saying -- Look at ME. I'M ALIVE! I'm Beautiful in spite of this trashy, soul-less place. . .

Fame:

Baby look at me
And tell me what you see
You ain't seen the best of me yet
Give me time I'll make you forget the rest

I got more in me
And you can set it free
I can catch the moon in my hands
Don't you know who I am

Remeber my name
Fame

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly
High

I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry
Fame

I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
Fame

I'm gonna live forever
Baby remember my name

Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember
Remember

Baby hold me tight
Cause you can make it right
You can shoot me straight to the top
Give me love and take all I've got to give

Baby I'll be tough
Too much is not enough
I'll grab your heart til it breaks
Ooo I got what it takes

Fame
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly
High

I feel it coming together
People will see me and cry
Fame

I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame
Fame

I'm gonna live forever
Baby remember my name

Remember

Baby remember my name

People will see me and cry

Dear Mr Akey, WOW WOW AND WOW again, your words are as always a delight to read and this time you sang a song too. I remember the song and I have to say whilst reading the words I did kinda join in but only quietly as the sun is out and I dont want to cause the rain to return. Thank you once again for taking so much time with your wonderful reply. Many many thanks dear Mr Akey:):):)
