Ballet Dancer

Following on from "Tying her ribbons", there have been some requests to paint another picture in a similar style. It is unusual for me to receive requests, so here she is.

Again painted in Conte hard pastels on Windsor paper. It measures approximately 12" by 12".

Joey was a commission from a lovely lady. She saw Oscar, when he was hanging in a local Medical Centre, and commissioned me to paint this picture for her 10 year old daughter. The daughter had looked after Joey through the summer holidays, and on return to school in September, missed him terribly.

The painting was intended as a Christmas present. Mum was so pleased with it that she intends to give it to her daughter straight away.

Altogether a very enjoyable experience. Let's hope that the next commission is as much fun.
