Notes to the work: This image represents the vulnerability required for tenderness. The ballerina walks a tightrope of emotion - so hopeful to keep walking that tender line, always knowing that keeping herself open and vulnerable means the possibility of having her heart hurt, and falling off down into the shadows for a while. // I photographed one of those paper-weights with a 3D image inside for this artwork, placed the words and the “tightrope” line underneath the paper-weight, then did a lot of work in photoshop to create the final artwork. It has some rough raw parts of the image, which reflect how life is - as tough as it is tender.

If this artwork speaks to you, and you’d like a few months to pay it via lay-by, contact me to discuss it. I want my work to go to the homes of people who love it, and if I can facilitate that by doing payment over time, that’s sweet with me.

There is the option of standard glass for the framing, which significantly cheaper than museum glass. If you’d like to explore the option of standard glass, choose the print-only option here, and email me about wanting a quote for standard glass.
