Last night I made some new products with blue sky and clouds on them – then I thought this might look pretty – so I did 130 or so products with this on it – I like it.
Ballerinas in the Sky – CricketDiane Art and Design 2013
The Ballerinas are floating in the clouds, stretching and preparing to dance. It is very pretty and surreal. The ballerina is from a pastel that I did in 18 x 24, then photographed, cut out from its background dance studio and floor – then set on top of a photograph of the blue sky with clouds that I had taken at the farm.
Very serene art.
After doing all those plates yesterday with their colorful balls and experimenting – I just had to do something else. Something pretty.
Ballerinas in the Sky Commuter Coffee Mug – CricketDiane Art and Design 2013
Each product had to be done individually with the ballerinas sized and placed on the background so probably every one of them is slightly different in position and tone. The designs are the same but placed in various ways making each one somewhat different. On the coffee mug above, the design is much larger with the ballerinas very obvious, but on some – the ballerinas won’t be seen quite as quickly making them a pleasant secret surprise to the viewer.
