Shimmy Dancer

11" x 17" | Paper

This lively pen-and-ink drawing is enhanced with watercolor and printed on a card stock. The size, 11x17", will fit a standard frame of the same size, carried by many of the larger craft stores and framing shops. The lively lady with the red skirt and zills is one of the most popular images in my "Cafe" series of smaller, informal sketches. Not all small drawings translate into a larger size, but luckily, this one did. I love this picture because of the dancer's expression of freedom and confidence and because she is playing the zills. I can almost imagine her looking over her shoulder to her drummer, saying, " come on, follow me, let's dance!"
