Graceful Ballerina

Just thought I would share a little piece that I did for my best friend, who is expecting a baby girl later this month.  This is done with my new softer style, and a limited color pallet.  As an artist, it is hard for me to "hold back" when it comes to color.  However, by forcing myself to keep it simple (pinks, lavenders, greens, grays and browns), I was able to achieve an emotional atmosphere and a sense of "setting" that is not quite so prevalent in my other works.
