Portrait of Svetlana

Acrylic on Canvas - 2015

48 x 36"




During a break from rehearsal, a ballerina wearing a tutu and matching arm-ruffles sits backstage. The wall behind her is adorned with inspiration and excellence for the art of dance. She wears large wool socks, which is a common practice among ballet dancers for avoiding injury by keeping the toes and ankles warm and flexible while taking a break. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.
