This piece is beautiful, Celeste. I'm not sure if she is a ballerina but that is instantly where my mind went with this piece. I so admire the ballet dancers, their strength, beauty, and grace. I see all of that in this piece and that red just exemplifies those qualities for me.

The red underpainting gives your ballerina such life. What a lovely, graceful painting, Celeste!

Have I told you how much your work inspires me? I know I have but I must say it again. Your paintings are breathtaking, and though haven't commented in some time - I've been busy and traveling a little - I have seen your posts every day. (I have attempted to comment on my cell, but it is troublesome because I talk too much).

This ballet dancer (with the fabulous underpainting, "Reflection" (beautiful composition and light, interesting texture) and the level semi-nude - all wonderful, and each such a different manifestation of your talent. Thank you.
