It seems just yesterday that our beautiful granddaughter Maddie slipped on her little pink ballet slippers and tiny, sparkly leotard and tentatively discovered First Position…
Maddie was our little ballerina.
Those little pink ballet slippers and tiny, sparkly pink leotard created some magic in Maddie’s heart… magic that has twirled and swirled and allegro-ed and brise-ed Maddie to movement so lovely & majestic that its very essence has captured the eye of renowned artist
This is Maddie now, a moment captured for eternity through the eyes of an artist… in all of Maddie’s exquisite grace as a dancer, a Tiny Dancer, and always our little ballerina.
I am so proud, so honored, so in awe, so inspired, so in love with this gloriously beautiful little granddaughter of ours who danced into our lives almost 11 years ago… and into our hearts the moment we discovered she was coming!
*Julia O’Malley-Keyes’ next series of paintings will depict the emotion and dedication to dance. Julia has been given exceptional access to three renowned ballet companies in the North East and will complete this series of paintings during 2012 -2013.
