DRAWING IN THE DARK

I love going to see live performances. I am a sucker for musicals and, I fact, love theater of all kinds.  A supporter of the Brave New World Repertory Theater, I have good friends in the company, making seeing their performances even more fun.

It’s really wonderful to watch dance too, probably because I always knew it was beyond my reach.  In fact, I go to the New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center regularly because we have had a subscription in my family for more than 40 years.

Somehow, watching other people engage in their art makes me want to engage in my art as well. That has led me to develop the habit of drawing in the dark.  Sometimes, it’s pitch dark and I am drawing completely blind, leading to some jumbled up drawings.   The kick I get is in being able to capture the performance in any way. I love having my art making be part of the experience!

The corps du ballet all wore these wonderful tutus with a crown to top it off. Every little girl’s dream costume.

Here are some of my drawings from the last time I saw NYCB performing “A Mid Summers Nights Dream.” IMG_2973 IMG_2970

  Such fun, drawing in the dark!
