Sweet Dream

Oil on canvas, sealed yarn & burlap, copper leaf

“Sweet Dream” was made at the same time as another of similar look and size called “Jewelry Box”. A ballet dancer stands on toes, front and center on a tiny stage which resembles a giant daisy. Her hands, costumed with duck heads, come to a classic ballet pose…though one snuggles a bit more under her chin. A large bronze spotlight shines on her.

Beauty and grace on stage.
“Sweet Dream”… she may be sweet, but she is also strong and powerful.
