Five Gold Rings!


Have learned to do all my pencil drawing in the second layer, leaving the first layer blank so I can go back and color it if I want. Which I didn’t here. Although I tried! Tried a black background, tried a blushy light pink, tried an ecru-tan-off-white. But liked white the best after all. So there.
Oh, and how hilarious is ballet sign language?!
My favorite is the one that is supposed to mean “dancing” but really looks like, “I have a tumble-weed on my head”.

Had my first ballet class Ever at the advanced age of thirty-two. Yikes.

    Humblebrag: I got to play the Queen in my studio’s mini-production of Swan Lake a couple years ago. It was so much fun but the whole role is pantomime, i.e., ballet sign language. And you have to do all the signs BIG or they won’t “read” way back there in the cheap seats. The head-tumbleweed was definitely in effect!

    • Pantomime! That’s the word I was looking for!
      Yeah man, Swan Lake Queen. That’s a whole lotta pantomime. That lady is always gesturing at people, like, Get A Job! Get Married! Dance, Monkey, Dance!
      Quite an arm work-out, I bet

    The mime, I loves it! And is she also saying “live long and prosper”? :)
