Related 31 thoughts on “THE TOES HAVE IT…” I love the painting. It has beautiful color and light. LikeLike Oh! Your comment made the sunshine for my day!!! Thank you… LikeLike Very nice … but we’re ballroom people. 😉 …. and ballet look hard. Did you see the ballet dancers on Kennedy Center Honors this year. Impressive – although I’ve never been to a ballet. LikeLike OH, common, Frank. Nothing, nothing, nothing is too hard for you!! At least that’s my image….smiling, she said. Once took a ballet class…couldn’t walk for two weeks using muscles I didn’t know existed. Now? I dance in barn boots…ask Dave (1point) he bought them for me….. LikeLike LOL … then again, ballet in barn boots would be interesting! … But, although I’ve never attended a ballet (and I like the arts), I am considering going to one … I don’t know when, but one sometime. LikeLike My first reaction….oh wow! my second reaction oh wow as I peer closer. I really love this pen and ink sketch with the water colour highlights,. with its wonderful perspective LikeLike Thank you, James, for your comment. LikeLike You are very welcome LikeLike Have not seen you for a while. Skipping over to do that now….. LikeLike Beautiful ballet shoes – ah me! An ambition unfulfilled. A Prima Ballerina not to be. Love from your friend, I-sob-a-lot. LikeLike Lovie, there were many of us not destined to be ballerinas. We could meet in the summer house over wine (for you) coffee (white, please) for me…and recount all our missed opportunities! However, I fear that session might take a while… Coming over in Sept. and will be very close to you. If you would like to try a meet-up…I’ll email you with details. No pressure…. LikeLike Yay! sounds brilliant. Definitely sounds brilliant. Let me know where and when… 🙂 LikeLike Still sorting out dates…will let you know when more concrete….oh, so smiling…! LikeLike 😀 LikeLike better than Degas, would like it in a frame please 🙂 LikeLike If you’d like…Email me with your address…and I’ll post a small copy to you! XXOOXRaye LikeLike I was actually wanting to ask for your address, would love to send you a letter … just cause I like writing them and I enjoy your comments etc LikeLike Did you get my email? LikeLike yes I did but just on my way to bed now, it’s 1am here 🙂 LikeLike Love the painting. You and Degas have an affinity for dancers. LikeLike Ballet shoes. Barn boots. Pretty much the same… Thank you, 1point, always nice to hear your voice… LikeLike I would imagine that toe-dancing in barn boots would present additional challenges. Also the rendering of such might be better suited for oils or acrylics. LikeLike You think? she said smiling. LikeLike Nietzsche must have thought that if he said enough eventually he would say something lovely! And it accords so beautifully with your watercolor. LikeLike My belief is we are all dancers. Illustration (using Monica’s comment below)…as humans we all dance our own “…public and private tango…” Thank you, Mr. C. for always stopping by. LikeLike Makes me think about God-hood in a new way Raye. What if God does not dance, does not like dance? Does not sing, does not like to sing? No, it is not possible. When you see the clouds swirl in the sky, watch the grass sway in the wind and smell the flowers as they do their public and private tango – is it possible that God does not dance? (By the way, I love the painting!) LikeLike “When you see the clouds swirl in the sky, watch the grass sway in the wind and smell the flowers as they do their public and private tango – is it possible that God does not dance?… No, it is not possible.” Absolutely beautiful, Monica. LikeLike Here’s a second Nietzsche for you: “Without music life would be a mistake.” And, yes. And…thank you, El G. LikeLike Okay, now I’ll have to actually read Nietzsche… LikeLike Can you believe this: I actually did a term report for freshman Psych 101 on Nietzsche? Instructor was not impressed……since….even my paper made no sense. At all…… LikeLike That might be the first Nietzsche quote I’ve agreed with. Did you do the drawing? It’s beautiful!
