Naked Ballerinas

400mm x 300mm Oil on canvas.I painted this as part of a 4 piece painting set.With this piece I wanted to try and bring over the hard work,the dedication,the pain,the lonelyness of training for a performance.When we see the spectacular show with all the costumes and decor we do not realize the lifetime effort that went into it,I painted them from behind as they became faceless when on stage and their only aim is to deliver a perfect performance.

About Lenerd Louw

I am residing in Krugersdorp, South Africa.Working as an Engineer on a deep level gold mine.I started painting late 2009. Am still searching where my preference lay.Have completed 37 paintings thus far. At present I enjoy attempting to paint people I have met into a setting where I feel someone might be able to spend an extra minute to ponder and see the message.
