Summer of Colour - Pink, Apple Green and Dark Green

Here we are with week four Boys of Summer! Oh my gosh the time is flying for Summer of Colour!!!

So Frederick (not Fred or Freddy thank you very much) had big dreams growing up. Joining a ballet company was at the top of his list….ah to become a professional danseur like Nureyev or Baryshnikov!

 When he was young he became enthralled with the spectacle of it all – his ambition -  to dance the lead in Romeo and Juliet.. 

Alas it was not meant to be – his father, a construction worker from Idaho, was not too supportive (oh dear)

Then one summer Frederick was introduced to water skiing! While not the grandeur of the Royal Ballet at least he could fulfill part of his dream.

And yes, every now and then wear a tutu on the water LOL….(but only for special occasions)…
Fun colours in acrylic to try and use for my theme this week  – but it worked – especially the stamps to give a feel for water. Enjoy. Jewels

  5. Jewels, this made me laugh out loud! I love your piece - it is so well composed and the colours are spot on. But it's the back stories you create to go along with these great pieces that really make me smile! You could be the next Anne Taintor! Thanks for dropping by my blog & leaving your lovely comments. Can't wait to see what you do next week!

  13. haha, I LOVE the back story that goes with Frederick and his groovy moves! Fabulous images! As an aside, I saw Nureyev dance many many years ago, as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet. Even as an older dancer he had such power and grace. It's a performance I shall always remember.

  17. Your silly stories crack me up. So was poor Frederick in the closet his whole life? Hopefully not. Love the colors, right up my alley. You're good at these series of things.
