"The Dancing Ladies"

Like a row of dancing ladies they sway,

In the soft summer breeze

Where they laugh and they play

Oh the dancing ladies they swing their soft hips

And bob their heads yes

As they blow you a kiss.

The sunflower ladies

Are sunny and bright

They whisper and giggle

and gossip all night.

How I love their bright smiles,

And their soft green embrace.

Prettty sunflower ladies

Draped in gossamer lace

Of a spider web dress-

They're a picture of grace!

by Michelle Devlin

This is a watercolour painting I did afew years ago to attempt to capture the delightful group of dancing ladies who never failed to entrance me. Each one was unique, each had her very own personality, and my amateur attempt to paint them did, I feel, capture the feeling of their movement and joyfulness.

If you have never tried painting with watercolours, I highly recommend you give it a try, and just make sure you find a subject that inspires you, preferably from nature. It is more about evoking the spirit of the subject, I believe, than any kind of technical exercise. Have fun with it! The wonderful thing about painting is that if you make a mistake - well you can just paint over it!

I hope my picture of the dancing ladies gives you the same cheerful feeling it gave me to paint it!
