Winter In June

proposed murals

looks like June is going to be a rather busy month as I'll be painting a number of murals and friezes for my Sister's new Baby Ballerinas Studio which is opening next month...
as you can see I intend to paint three Degas works in one of the studios...



I'm still painting stage props too so Charlotte's remaining three mini portraits are on hold for the time being...
still plenty of time to enter my June competition to win your own mini portrait
