8x10 Oil on Panel
I love ballet and all that goes with it.  My granddaughter, Lauren, is a ballet dancer and she hopes to dance in pointe next year.  In the meantime, she borrowed a pair of dead shoes (shoes that are worn out and can no longer be used) for me to paint.  I worked on two paintings and will post the other one soon, provided my computer will do its job.  It has been to the Genius Bar twice and is still acting a little crazy.

This short video tells a little about pointe shoes and how important they are to the dancer.


  1. Beautifully painted, Linda! and a lovely story. My granddaughgter has been in ballet since she was in diapers at almost 14 she was going to dance in pointe but she had a terrible time with it so she remains in ballet... love the soft pink in the shoes!

  2. This painting is very pleasing..colors, style....I love it


Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and leaving a comment! I read and appreciate each and every one!!
