Weekend Edition 23

Edgar Degas

End of an Arabesque, 1877
The artist is working. The first thing you notice is the yellow glow of the shirt. The glow represent the magic of the dance, the artwork. Next, you see the ballerina. She looks like a real simple person. There is nothing magical about her. How coud she create something so beautiful and enchanting? She've got something special, the talant(the bouqet). It is the flares inside her soul(the flowers inside the wrap) rhat she use to illuminate the world. She absorbs the surrounding world through the talant. This creates the magic and glow of the dance. If you look to the background, you will see that not all figures posses the same magical glow.
