I have never seen the “Nutcracker” ballet and I am not a mad fan of classical music, but I am enchanted by Tchaikovsky’s music. The first time I heard the “Waltz of the Snowflakes” which is part of the ballet ” The Nutcracker”, the choir actually irritated me! Slowly but surely, I became hooked on it and imagined the snow flurries dancing around carefree and eventually coalescing into a more cohesive dance form which culminates in them being able gain a voice to sing together. I always wanted to try and paint it… The dance part at least. And I have finally did.
I should have called it the “dance of the dots and flowers” because I used tiny dots and flowers to build the painting. Or maybe I should have called it “an ode to Patience”!
