Ballet Pink

    Lately I’ve been admiring the dainty color of ballet pink. I don’t seem to paint much with it. This time of year, I always think “why don’t I use more spring colors?” I’m thinking I need to 🙂

   I’ve also been admiring ballet art, especially since my little one is quite the dancer. I think, perhaps, she’s found that thing that makes her heart sing, something she’s been so natural at since she could toddle. We were always amazed at her sense of rhythm, and she’s always had a flair for the dramatic.

   I’ve always admired dancers and ballerinas. I long loved the Degas dancers, and admire the art of ballet so much. I also love that dancers love knitwear, haha. Have you seen the film The Dancer on netflix? Its on instant queue now. The dancer features wears an entirely knitted body suit. I keep thinking “If I didn’t have an ounce of body fat, I’d totally wear that too.” 🙂 I imagine as Audrey gets older I will be her little mama in the corner of the studio knitting leg warmers. Pink ones, of course.

   This pretty pale shade brings to mind elegance and youth. Springtime. Softness. So many times I overlook it with my love of its more daring cousin, red. But perhaps there is some ballet pink in my future. And as recital time comes upon us, I’m sure I will fall even more for this shade.

  1. I love your latest blonde beauty. Very timeless indeed. I also love the scratched out tintype on your WWMID? blog. So very interesting. I remember the first few days of both my babes in school. I was totally LOST without them. It is funny how you get so use to movement and sound all around you. Keeping a thought in your mind without interuption is hard to get use to. It took me awhile to figure out how to work like that, but it is amazing how much you can get done once you DO get use to it. Wait until you go shopping alone with no one to talk to (or scold ;)). It is weird. Hee hee.


  2. I would LOVE to see your work all done in pale, pretty colors. Promise you'll show us? But don't you be tempting me to spend all my Indie monies at your booth… ;-)~


  3. What a lovely way of styling the catalogue! I love everything to do with ballet… I want some ballet shoes just to wear around the house so I can pretend to be a graceful dancer.

  8. If you liked The Dancer, you should check out Étoiles and Ballerina. I took ballet as a child and then picked it up again in college and loved it so much more than I had as a kid. I'm starting ballet again in May. So excited!P.S. I love Audrey's leopard-print shoes. Too cute!


  9. Ballet, isn´t that a wonderful thing. About 10 yeras ago I was a bit obsessed with ballet. I borrowed all the ballet videos from the library and read biographies on dancers. I especially loved to watch Rudolf Nureyed dance and to read biographies on his life. Every now and then I attend classical ballet performances with The Royal Ballet in Stockholm.
