Two in pink tutus ~ Acrylics ~ 5" x 7" in a mat ~ $35 plus shipping and handling ~ Portion of proceeds to The Tutu Project

I don't know if any of you saw a clip about the Pink Tutu Project on any of the morning news magazine shows recently, but I saw this, and it really touched me.  Mr Carey, a professional photographer, started the project nine years ago, as much to make his wife, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer, smile.  Mr and Mrs. Carey have started a foundation to help fund care for women with breast cancer who can't afford treatment.  Click here to see more ...  http://thetutuproject.com/

As a result, I thought it might be fun to do a little series of pink tutu figures, and donate some of the proceeds to the Project.   Fellow Artists ... What do you think?  Would you do a tutu or two?

Your ballerinas are wonderful. Great texture and brush strokes.
Happy Painting.

Thanks, Sue and Nora. I so appreciate comments from other artists! Love this concept that the the guy started with his photos! :-)
