Original Painting "En Pointe"
24" x 30" Oil on Gallery Style Canvas
A thought provoking painting inspired by the ballet move where a dancer is on her tip toes. If only we look a certain way, we will be loved. If only we have the perfect job, home, or family will we be accepted. If only we say the right things others won't be angry. If only...
And so she sits proper in her pretty yellow skirt. Doing everything she can to be perfect. Yet darkness is closing in on her once bright world, with only a few bright paint strokes remaining. She fades into the background losing herself in the dance to please everyone.
