awww, well, if you would like to see this beauty it is at my little gallery at escondido arts partnership.
this is not a paintover. BTW.
this is a painting of a russian ballerina of circa 1920's called russian dancer.
sometimes i feel like painting in red.
i have several paintings that have red as a dominant color. or as in this case - almost the whole color. its very striking and for me, emotionally charged.
