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!
