This ballet dancer greeting card features the arabesque movement or position. The arabesque is a classic movement or position in ballet and can take some slightly different forms. This artwork was a request from a customer but one that I completely enjoyed tackling. Although I lack any sort of coordination worth mentioning I admire the grace of ballet dancers. It clearly takes much practice and perhaps some innate grace as well. I also admit that I can't put names it steps and movements but once I saw this move illustrated I knew I had seen this position many times before. Definitely a classic!
What attracts you to the ballet artwork on this card? The lavender or violet colors? The graceful form? Perhaps you are a ballet dancer yourself or you are shopping for someone who is or aspires to be? I hope you'll share your thoughts.
The dancer in this scene is based off a photograph by photographer, Kenny Johnson. His work is used here under a creative commons 2.0 license. You can see the work attributed here.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
