BALLERINAS AND PORTRAITS




January is fast approaching and that means it's almost time for Leslie Saeta's 
3 0   P A I N T I N G S   I N   3 0   D A Y S   C H A L L E N G E

We are encouraged to choose a theme for the 
challenge, so I've been thinking about that.  

Edgar Degas said, "A painting requires a little mystery, 
some vagueness, and some fantasy.  When you always 
make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people."  

So I'm taking his idea literally and aiming for paintings that will be a
little hazy and undefined, leaving some things up to your imagination.

In the past I've done ballerinas . . .







But so far - no portraits.  
Maybe a little of both in January, using my two favorite little people as inspiration?




I'm hoping you'll follow along on my blog through the month of January, 
and that you won't be bored with what you see!

Or maybe you could send me photos of some of YOUR favorite little people?

Thanks for looking.  I hope you'll come back on January 1, 2016, to see what I've been working on!

You have beautiful paintings! Yes, they might be a bit undefined, but this helped make such paintings mysterious and attractive,in a major way.

YOU COULD MAKE THAT IS ON FACEBOOK!
