Ballerina by Guild Member, Matt Miller


It is always fun to know the story about a painting

I originally conceived of a painting of a ballerina that had fallen to 
the ground and was looking up and reaching out for a hand to help her. 
Looking at the completed painting, however, I don't know if she has 
fallen and is looking for help or is simply caught mid dance in a moment 
where she's on the floor and reaching for her partner to lift her into 
the next movement of the dance. I think the second interpretation 
resonates with me more now that I look back at the painting.
