The Ballet Rose by Cindy M. McClure. This painting is a combination of acrylic and oils and measures 36" x 48". Inspired by a group of little performers receiving their certificates and roses at the end of a recital. The child shielding the bright lights from her eyes was making sure that Mommy was looking at her after she received her rose. The challenge of painting netting and sequins was irresistible, as well as trying my hand at portraits.
