Red Hair was painted from a sketch done at the Jacob’s Pillow School. I go each year to draw the young dancers there in class. I find both beauty and inspiration in dance studios and have since the beginning of my career. The phenomenal beauty that we witness on stage in a dance performance is born in the studios through hard and focused physical training. There is also the human element which is guided by devoted instructors who are passing along their own heritage. This work measures 21 inches wide by 30 inches in height (paper size). On a rich teal handmade paper that sets off the dancers red hair. Copyright 2020.
