Elizabeth, 24x36 oil on canvas

Happy Tuesday and day after Labor Day!  Recently, my friend Liz came over and very graciously helped me get some great reference photos by posing as a model.  She is gorgeous and was an excellent ballerina, so naturally I was able to snap some great shots!  Here is the first of the series of ballerinas in which Liz posed, aptly named "Elizabeth."  I had a lot of fun with the skirt especially, so full and beautiful, even more fun than the fluffy white tutu I made Liz wear while we had our photo shoot.  Ha!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and welcome Fall!  I'm excited about everything pumpkin, but in all honesty I'm really sad that the Summer is drawing to a close.  Summer just isn't long enough here in DC, even though it was 90 degrees today.  If I ruled the world, it would ALWAYS be 90 degrees outside!!!!  Hope your Labor Day was great and that you enjoy the short work week!
