Well, it has been awhile since I have painted a ballerina. When I looked at this beautiful painting in progress by James Tennison I couldn't help but to give it a go. Spring is a time when I usually pick a 'concentration' - a particular subject to work on. Will it be the ballerina or some other figurative study? The artist Lee of 'Defining Me' is trying so many new things. She's tickling my mind to paint still life. Yesterday I caught myself looking at one of my favorite things - the green bell pepper.
