Reading was my passion before I ever picked up a brush to paint.
Now I can use the inspiration of one to fire the completion of the other.
The Book Challenge is one of my favourite challenges over on the Painting Friends forum (whose button I've recently added to my blog!)
Recently I finished a book called The Beach Hut.
The row of huts had their own occupants and the book told the story of their lives and how they intertwined. One occupant had been a ballerina in her youth before she had to change career. Ballet, to quote the book, had been her whole world.
So when at a recent art meet, there were a few items to choose from, I chose to paint the ballet shoes:
Echoes of Youth
6" x 11"
Arches 140 Rough
WN aq paint.
