About to Dance

Posted by Trae Mundt on

This portrait is in my private collection. There's something about this one that strengthens me when I look at it. Her expression stirs a resolve in me to improve my drawing skills and work each day to better see the details of each face.

I remember my beloved art teacher years ago standing behind me as I was painting a glass vase. She kept saying "Do you see it?" I said "No." Her eyes were highly trained to catch the smallest of details. Finally after what seemed like hours I saw what she saw. When I put that small detail on my vase it was magical. Today when I approach my drawings and paintings I remember her words and I whisper to myself "Do you see it?" Thank you, Speedy! 

I thank God for my excellent teacher!

It's all about the details.
