Portrait of a Bailaora - original oil pastel portrait by Connie Chadwell


I could have entitled it 'Female Flamenco Dancer', but the Spanish sounded so much better.
What an evening! My USB ports quit working, so I had an interesting time getting the photo on my laptop. Then my laptop quit on me for about ten minutes. I'll bet I get to know the Toshiba customer service people really well in the morning.
Back to my posting - it was a quick one and small - 5 x 7" on Pastelbord. I could have done a larger one and taken more time, since she held the pose awhile, but I just wanted to get the essentials down.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I was going to post a picture of family and friends at the table on Turkey Day, but got all involved in visiting and completely forgot.
Thank you for stopping by Hackberry Street Studio!

Connie,
Wonderful portrait. I like the spanish name and thought it was her first name for a second before I read the blog entry. :-) Nina

Hi Nina and thank you! Re the title - I know it was sort of confusing and I'm glad the blog post explained it okay. It's great to hear from you and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
