oil on canvas, 20 x 24, August 2006

Portrait of six-year-old Sydney painted as an "Ice Fairy" in the Nutcracker Ballet. Even though the girl is six-years-old Tom painted her as a Prima Donna Ballerina. The painting took two years to complete. Tom painted the tutu from life from the Cinderella tutu used by the Cincinnati Ballet Company. The portrait shows Sydney in the line of the fairies with the Ice Palace in the background. You may have seen Tom working on the portrait in the winter of 2005 in the entrance to the Ludlow Garage, Clifton, Cincinnati, Ohio. The background was taken from a drawing of Da Vinci.
