I was sitting on the porch in the 25 degrees heat when the postman brought me this lovely card from Jill, who sends me art cards from wherever she happens to be - in this case Madrid. (Our post is not delivered until noon or later I should explain.) I picked a posy to suit the card...
It is Degas' Bailarina Verde, Green Ballerina, in pastel and gouache, 1877- 1879. It looks so very modern, with its amazing composition. Jill says it felt like you could touch the embroidery and feel the texture of the skirts.
Thank you Jill.
