I really love how this page evolved. The background had a scrap of paper and then watercolor crayons and gesso. Then I added the image which is a clipping from a dick blick catalog. I added the skirt and toned down the colors a little with a china marker. Outlined in pen and charcoal and then I added the ships and the words. I must have been thinking of my grandmother and all the trips across the atlantic that she took. She might not have been dancing but this lady sure can.
