My Little Dancer

Don’t you love it when you come across something that really speaks to you? For many of us we find that on the web with Pinterest and StumbleUpon.

I am passionate about many a thing, and one of those is music. Couldn’t live without it and I love following my favourite bands. I have just found a new band to crank in the car, and as I was listening to them, I thought — hey they remind me so much of another band that I miss because they haven’t been on the scene in awhile… And wouldn’t you know as I was furiously youtubing them, I found a connection between those very 2 bands — the lead singer of one had collaborated with the other band. And that got me to thinking…

It’s funny how I find that completely fine with music, but with my art I have a harder time. Sometimes we feel that what we have to offer up to the world may not be unique enough, but you know, everything has been done, we all just find different ways to channel what inspires us.  We all bring something uniquely different to the table that transforms what we do into being ours.

Dancer by Edgar Degas, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

I fell in love with Degas this past March when I was fortunate enough to catch the exhibit, “Degas and the Nude”. The bronze statue Petite Danseuse de quatorze ans inspired me to create the following canvas:
