Language of the Soul by CarrierPastel Language of the Soul by CarrierPastel

This is a ballerina that I did as a commission for a client. I chose this particular piece because I loved the idea of doing a monochromatic piece in pastel as I had never attempted one before. My friend paid a great deal of money for the piece. It ended up costing her $600, although only $200 of that was my fee. She paid $400 for her framing because she wanted it to be perfect. Her expense paid off as the framing came out beautifully.

The original photographer of the lovely image that I used as a reference (and ONLY as a reference) is ~etherealwinter and you can find that image here.

Chalk Pastel
22 x 30 Inches

PLEASE NOTE: The Custom Pastel by Kristen Carrier stamp in the lower right corner of this artwork will NOT show on the prints of it that are available for purchase.
