The Audition


Having been to many dance recitals over the years, I decided to add an expression of my appreciation of modern dance. I have enjoyed watching graceful artists move with ease since my first visit with my aunt to the old Harvest Moon Ball at Madison Square Garden when I was 5. Their grace, athleticism, energy and storytelling talent is certainly far beyond my ability.

I used the colors to emphasize the mood often created by the dancer during an audition. She is both in awe of her judges and energized by the opportunity.
