Be the Light...

(296) Anticipation
private collection
8 x 10, oil
In this painting, the ballerina and rug are bathed in a light that bounces and illuminates its surroundings. There were two light sources; a splendid challenge where the light takes center stage, becoming a play-within-a-play .

Plan to change.
Plan to grow"...Iyanla Vanzant

Gorgeous Faye. Your ability to capture light is amazing. It reminds me of a contemporary take on an old masters subject. Wonderfully done.
