If Ballet Were Easier, It Would Be Called Football- Original


Regular price $45.00

a girl like me... “If ballet was easier, it would be called football.”

So... this girl is a ballerina, or maybe an aspiring ballerina. She knows all too well the difficulty level of performing pirouettes, fouettes, grand adages, or grand jetes. (spelling these terms is not so easy either!) The difficulty level of these moves is much higher than... let's say... well, how about catching a leather ball and running down a nicely manicured grassy field with a custom helmet, a team of large people blocking others from tackling you, all while garbed in safety pads galore! Well, YES... I'd say the ballet moves have a difficulty level OFF THE CHARTS compared with football!

Your girl, sister, daughter or friend will celebrate her fierceness and strength every single day when she looks at this original painting sitting on her desk or bedside table... and she will KNOW, for sure, that football players could NEVER do ballet.

  • I created this Mixed Media painting on a 5 x 5 canvas (1.5" wrapped edge) using acrylics, tulle, ink, and paper.
  • The words "if ballet was easier, it would be called football" are displayed along the canvas edge (see pic for a sneak peek!).
  • Each painting has a slightly "hidden" date somewhere on the canvas; the date represents a date in history that a woman performed a FANTASTICAL feat!
  • The painting will be delivered to your door with a custom story describing the inspiring woman and the date she set the world ablaze.
