Last Spring I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with some little four year old ballerinas at a local studio. They were adorable. As is life with that age group you had some of the children who were just bouncing around, having a blast. Then there were the little ones who were so totally focused on dance they were oblivious to the camera. They had dreams and those dreams were so real to them. They were so into the moment and into the movement. The more I paint these children - the more I dream of going back there every few years and follow the progress of these kids and see how far they go in their dance. It makes you really think - when does someone truly know in their heart what they want in their life. Is the gift so strong that even these little ones know what they want to do?
