Even though she's held by a ball and chain, she is still able to rise above it.  The colorful quilted backdrop fits the timeframe wonderfully.  A great inspirational metaphor.

This made a very impact  on me and I love it.  As a young person I fantasized myself as a ballerina  but unfortunately it was not meamt to be.  Although I was small in starture and weight I was not graceful and light.  I remember one girl who probably was much larger and more graceful than I and I ruminated over that fact for a very long long time.  I am now way past my prime and still have those dreams. but have now switched to other things that I can do and  am enjoying iwhat I do.

immensely, mainly art which is one of my greatest dreams even though I do not necessarily follow all the rules.  I am enjoying my freedom and do not worry about the critics.  I am who I am and I love your artwork.
