Pink Geese Go For a Walk

“The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously. The first is imperative, the second is disastrous.”
– Margot Fonteyn

Pink Geese Go For a Walk – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor Postcard

Didn’t I warn you earlier in the week that I had a thing with pink last weekend?  There’s more pink coming.  he he  I really enjoyed the reference photos Elainesq posted in the WetCanvas WDE, for us to paint from.  If you haven’t tried it, go take a peek at the Weekend Drawing Event in the All Media Art Event forum.  It’s great practice and very inspiring.  I’m signchick over there.  We had references from Australia two weeks ago and this coming weekend, we’re in Britian with oldrockchick.  Fun!!  🙂

About Margot Fonteyn

Margot Fonteyn, the elegant British prima ballerina, is considered one of the truly great dancers of our time. She was born in 1919 in Surrey. She made her debut in 1934 as a snowflake in Nutcracker and was a leading ballerina within four years. She flirted with retirement in the late 1950’s until Rudolf Nureyev defected from the Soviet Union; he became her dancing partner for the next decade, a brilliant creative match despite their 20-year age difference. She died in 1991 in Panama.
