Memory Dancing

Memory Dancing

Performances past
where movement once ruled,
played out in motion stopped.
The success or failure
judged by how long.

A couple of sketches from a session with “D” not so long ago. A reminder of past dreams. Of course she was an aspiring dancer once.
9”x 12” ink and chalk on tinted paper

14”x 11” ink and watercolor


  1. The years appear to just melt away here...she is back there, lapping up the applause, reliving the adoration...and we are carried along with her!
    Wonderfully evocative!!😊😊

    1. I do think she was enjoying the idea of another performance and going back to past dreams that of course couldn’t last.
      Thank you
