19-Recital Excitement

“Recital Excitement”

10″ x 8″ Original watercolor on watercolor paper.

Dance recitals have been a part of our lives since our daughter was six years old and we attended her first one. We were so proud of her. She was and still is a talented dancer. Now she and her husband own their own ballet school and we continue to attend recitals, this time it’s their recitals. We love them. We have beamed with pride as both our granddaughters danced in those recitals.

When our daughter first began her dancing career, attending her recitals was not at the top of the list for fun things to do for her two big brothers.

Our daughter once asked me if it was her idea to begin dance training or mine. I couldn’t remember; I think she and I were both born loving ballet.

  1. Oh so sweet. I remember posing for that photograph at Helene Mittlestead’s dance school. Wonderful memories. I love both paintings.
