I love this painting… when I was young I remember my dad painted a ballerina… it was an oil painting and I absolutely loved it… I’m thinking he gave it to my grandma (his mother-in-law)… (hmmm, wonder what happened to that painting?) I admired it so much and wanted to be a ballerina when I grew up. Well I grew up… I did take many years of ballet classes, but then, like the piano lessons life got busy and I stopped. Oh how I wish I never stopped! The artist, Scott Mattlin captures his subjects beautifully and in such a loose style which explains all the red dots I suppose. I try to pick one that isn’t sold, however, this one IS sold, but I loved it, so… If you get a chance, check out his website! Judging by his website he’s a cool guy, with a really neat story as to how he became an artist and the path he took. I admire his journey! This guy is from Denver, CO but teaches workshops in different areas… check him out!
