Ballet Dancer and Harp. Melanie Logan. Mixed media. For me there is no wrong in "art." It comes from the person's inner being, a need to express what is felt in the media form. My love for music enabled the energies to compose the piece! -- Melanie Logan
Afternoon Dress. Playing the harp became a craze for young ladies in the 1790s. The harp was thought to show off a lady's arms to great advantage. This harpist wears a spotted round gown with a simple ruffle at the hem. A handkerchief knotted around her neck keeps her chest warm.
