I am working on a portrait today, which is slowly becoming what
I hoped for. It seems almost magical that three of my favourite
portraits came up on my Facebook memories -- as if to say,
"Girl you've got this." At the very beginning of blogging I was
working on a series that lasted for quite a few years called
The Dance Series.

There were different parts to the series -- Before the Dance, which
featured young people on the edge of growing up -- about to step
onto the dance floor of life. If you follow me on Instagram,
you'll know that I frequently feature my favourite dancers' videos
in my story. I love the joy and exuberance they display.

But the dance series showed both the beauty, and nervousness
young people have when they are stepping into their futures.
I also did paintings of adults who were part of At the Dance,
or After The Dance. So these three beauties came up for me
today, and I hear their message -- "Keep painting, and
keep on dancing."
Have a doing what you love day.
