Yesterday Mark and I went up to Bella Ballet in The Kentlands in Gaithersburg , MD to do a photo shoot for some painting reference images. Hope MacDonald, owner of this establishment shows a joie de vivre for teaching children the joys of dance. It is obvious from the images below that the children are as enamored of her as she is of them. Hope has plenty of props and fun things for the children to use during class and yesterday was an Easter theme. The Studio itself is light and airy and is decorated in such an adorable way! Mark tried to be as unobtrusive as possible and I think really captured the emotions of the day.
Stay tuned to Mark’s Art website for paintings created from this Shoot.
