Pretty Ballerina

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
I was rummaging through my desk, hoping to get ideas for new designs for Cafepress, when my daughter came in and asked me to draw a ballerina for her. Gosh, it seemed liked ages since I last drew! What seemed like eternity, I gave her the pencil drawing. God bless little children! They always appreciated little things. Andee was VERY satisfied with the ballerina I drew...(well, I'm not lol). Would've included a picture of the drawing here, but she had her nanny make it into a paper boat! :-)

Anyway, it made me realize that I do have a ballerina piece of art back when I was still in college. Well I found it...under stacks and stacks of dusty files and folders-- the work is 14 years old now! (am I THAT old?) Hmmm.... good thing it fits well on our scanner. So, here it is! Oil pastel on a 9x12 drawing pad, drawn in 1988. Wish I could replicate that..!
Never too late! :-)

You weren't satisfied with that ballerina drawing? You are kidding right? That is real good drawing. If you draw anything else you don't like let me know, I'll copy and paste them on my site.
You have a nice site too.
