Gordon Milne Kelley's Move - Kelley McKinlay
Kelley's Move - Kelley McKinlay72h x 48w
Kelley McKinlay is in his 15th season with Alberta Ballet. Not only is Kelley a remarkable and seasoned dancer he is a true lover of the arts. For the many years that I have known Kelley he has taken an interest in my artistic efforts, graciously answered my many questions, posed for sketches and patiently explained the subtleties of movement. This is my third painting of Kelley and hopefully there will be more. In this painting Kelley is shown completing a Corsair Jump – from the highest point of the jump to the strength and solidity of the landing. Strength, fluid motion, discipline and artistry all define Kelley. What an honour to paint him.
