Minja
24"x18"




Loving Degas as I do, I could not resist this subject matter when it came up. This painting is from a picture of my childhood friend, Minja, when she attended ballet school. The lessons didn't stick, however, and she never made it to Swan Lake or Riverdance for that matter! Still, she has lovely expression and looks extremely Degas-like in this shot!

Leatrice #1
20"x14"

This is a headshot that I've been working on. I want to incorporate the hair with the background and I'm searching for the right degree of inclusion....I'm half pleased with it but will try and do it again to see what improvements I can make!
