This was the final canvas of the five I created last year for work colleagues.  I did give it to her before Christmas, I just didn’t post it here (and the pics from #3 are missing, so I am waiting on that colleague to get me a new digital photo  of it.

SB has been taking belly dancing lessons, and I used that as the basis for the concept, centred on a vintage image of a belly dancer.  She said she likes blue, and I added a medium depth purple to the palate for some variation.  The beaded ribbon was added to evoke an exotic, beaded curtain feel which I thought went with the theme, and there is gold foiling added randomly across the canvas.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.
