4.) Pinterest Challenge, find something you’ve pinned, TRY it and share it. Was it worth pinning?

Caroline Ross onto Art Work

My friend Eric painted this picture. You should check out his other work. He has an ETSY shop called McRay Studios. He also had a website by the same name.

I pinned this painting for three reasons:

1. I wanted to practice pinning pins on my own, not just repinning stuff.
2. I also wanted to support my friend, Eric, and get him some publicity on Pinterest.
3. And, I’m also an artist, and I wish I could call myself a dancer. I just love ballerina art. And, I love these two children together, both practicing their passions.

I met Eric when I was doing a collection of one-acts in Raleigh, NC. The show was called Women Speak, and was done by the Raleigh Ensemble Players (REP). I don’t know if they still do, but at the time the REP performed in the Art Space downtown, and Eric had a studio right beside the REP offices. I met him on one of my first days of rehearsals. And, we became friends. Then a couple of years later I bought my first ever original work of art from him.

Here it is!

I’m sorry it is not great photo quality. I couldn’t seem to get a good one, and I couldn’t find the picture that Eric and I took together with the painting, when I bought it. *Oops*

Was it worth the try? Pinning this pin? For sure! It’s always great to help a friend, and it is mighty fine to look at. I’m sure many people would enjoy repining this piece of art.

Now I just need to practice some more. Pins, Pins and more pins!
