The Dying Swan (Anna Pavlova)

I’m trying to get into a routine with blogging and my work. I’m so unorganized everything has become a little chaotic. Having my first grandchild doesn’t help either, I get lost in the world of Oliver and could quite easily stay there.

This post contains images ofย  Swan Lake, a commission I recently completed for a former ballerina whose last performance was the lead in Swan Lake.

Swan Lake is proving a popular theme, easy to understand, it’s such a dramatic ballet. I could watch it over and over.

I’ve tried to keep the dress to the original one that Anna Pavlova wore. Jayne, who commissioned the piece, has just told me that the dying swan was choreographed especially for Anna Pavlova with music written by Saint-Saens and is not part of the Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

Thanks! Jayne. I’m glad your pleased with the piece.
