"Ballet Mind II" is an acrylic painting on 100% archival paper that measures 30" x 22.5". This is similar to my "Ballet Mind" created earlier and sold. This is an abstract with collage elements with a focus and using a cut from "The Dancer and the Bouquet" by Degas.
Mainly two of the dancers are actually from an archival print of this famous work. I added more pigment to the dancers and created a looser dancer on the left. She was in the original grouping, I just worked her more. I wanted to create an abstract dance studio with an emphasis on the teal, gray and cream color family. Homage to the master, Degas.
Also to reflect the abstract space and the solitary existence of dancers practice in a large space, a void to be filled by their movement.
The cropped area to be seen within the inside of the matting should measure approximately 27" x 19 1/2". This could be framed right up to the edge, but my preference would be a wide mat (5-6" matting)
This is a mixed media acrylic painting with collage and gesso.
Please take time to play around with the print option even if your desire is the original. Costs nothing to play and you can view on different colored walls. I limit the number of prints to 10 of any of my pieces. Once that number is obtained the print option in removed.
