Harriet's Gift"Harriet's Gift" (2011)

Geneviève's latest paintings were inspired by 1930's dancer Harriet Hoctor, whose fluid grace on stage brought to mind the way trees sway in the breeze outside the artist's studio. Inspired by Harriet's talent and her life dedicated to that talent, Geneviève sought to capture Harriet's own joy as she danced, and also the gift that she passed on to others through her dancing and teaching.
