"Limited Lessons" depicts two pointe shoes bound together by their laces. It is an upclose view of the laces and refers to the time I was taking ballet lessons and was denied an opportunity to continue from flat ballet slippers to pointe shoes. I chose to focus on an upclose view of the laces and to exhibit the emotional feeling of being constrained. I also chose to challenge myself by changing the lighting and thus painting a still-life in a dimly lit room.
