once upon a time, christmas for me didn't mean endless shopping or tacky christmas parties or making lists for santa, it meant one thing: THE NUTCRACKER. in fact my collective memory of childhood christmas is pretty much a blur of party scenes, giant mouse heads and tychovski. anyway, i thought i'd paint a ballerina today since i'm feeling sentimental about all the wonderful excitement of the nutcracker christmases of my past (for any of your hardcore ballet fans out there, yes i know thats a swan, not a sugarplum, relax) and also because i really REALLY want to go see black swan. it is a travesty that i have not seen it yet. it is at the top of my priority list right now.

Yes! I did ballet from probably…4 years old until high school! I even saw the Nutcracker at Lincoln Center in NYC when I was young…one of my most favorite Christmas memories!
