Ella in Flight

16" x 16"
Oil on canvas

Ella is my niece's granddaughter, a beautiful, talented dancer who just turned 10. I have enjoyed painting her. Getting a good photo was difficult, maybe because of the black background. I used a black acrylic for the background, then painted her in oils.


  1. The movement in this is outstanding. I love your work.

  2. It was a challenge, but I appreciated your insight and advice!
