IF Routine

This is an older painting that I already posted on my blog, but I really want to start participating in Illustration Friday again and this painting matches the word for the week the best, so I'm recycling:-) This is a painting I did of Sophia doing a dance ROUTINE to use for thank you cards. I always wanted to be a ballerina when I was a little girl but never got to try it. It was fun living through Sophia while I did this illustration!:-) Make sure to click on it so you can see it better. It's hard to read in this little box.
