Little Slices of Life



Another little piece of the "Slice of Life" slowly coming together.  

Originally, I was trying to paint a bird in a nest here.  You can imagine the tutu was the beginning feathers of a bird, but while erasing and sketching, I saw the head of  this ballerina and knew I could not have tried to paint her without a reference photo even if I wanted to.  So I just let her develop very slowly guided by intuition.     


Look how delicate her fingers look. 


All by listening to my inner voice... I think I like painting this way.

Love This Diane! Truly The Ballerina Swooped In And Brought The Whole Piece Together. So Happy You Listened To That Lit'l Voice Inside Because Your Work Has Been Blossoming So Much As A Result. I've Been Trying To Do That More These Days Myself..Allowing Myself To Actually "Hear My Own Thoughts". Allowing My Spontaneous Side To Rise Up More. Have A Glorious Weekend Sweet Friend! Hugs From The Peach State, Terri
