Dance of the firefly by crayonmaniac Dance of the firefly by crayonmaniac
Ellen, sweetie, another little surprise, a small painting all about the pointe shoes, which we both love so much. Happy birthday sweetie.

I did no decor on this one, I just wanted all the attention of the girl, this girl in complete abandon in her dance.

Know that the first drawings I made as a child were those of little balerinas and this a return to first love.

Well, what can I say, a mere elf can never be enough for your birthday...

Happy birthday sweetie :iconvaledhelven:

And to all my other sweet friends, thanks so much for all the favs and the comments, I wish I could paint hundreds of dedications for all of you :heart:

This is one of my very favorites of yours, the soft pink, the texture of the shoes bring a sexiness to the motion, and I like the background being like this, it really makes the figure pop out of the image!!! Beautiful, I do so love pink.

oh dear that is quite a story.
An artist dedicated a painting to me called : 5 chicks called Moe (it was a group of singer way back)
and as i got this gift, i loved so dearly, i promised the artist that i would paint him 5 CHICKS, chicks here meaning sexy girls of course and so i did, a series like my lightbringers.
Other people, like anne, caught on on the idea and made Moe's too, but it petered out alas
did you see my 5 moe paintings?

Yes I did, LOL and wondered about the significance but wasn't sure I should ask LOL didn't want to interrupt a private thing :) I try to be careful not to be a pushy bore :)

this is what i like about DA, when you meet artists whose art you admire and they admire your art right back, no false pretense, just great mutual art enjoyment, really happy to meet you my friend, thank you

I really like the flow of the movement here and the hair. The fading cloth is also a nice touch. ^^

I put up 'recluse' because this time of year i don't get much time to do much of anything except work :phew: but it's also a contradiction because I am anything but reclusive on DA--I'm everywhere! :ninja:
