sketching swans

another ballerina! a swan to be specific. spring time always makes me think of swan lake because that is when we'd preform it back in my ballet days. a funny development of sketching ballerinas - it makes me have better posture. while i sit here thinking about the poses and the beautiful attention to detail that makes ballet so captivating i find myself being more aware of my own slouching and sit up straighter. so with that, i bid you a happy weekend full of amazing posture!

  • Hello Inslee!
    I recently discovered your work and I really love this particular painting! Would you be willing to do a print of this for my best friend’s birthday? She has danced all her life and is ending her career when we graduate college this May. Let me know if you think you’d be interested!

    Thank you!
