On a recent visit to the French Quarter, I chanced upon a band playing near Jackson Square. They featured a hoop dancer, the first I have ever seen. I was enthralled with this beautiful young woman and her mode of expression. The hoop dance brought to mind belly dancing with its fluid, sensual moves, and I was also reminded of Istanbul's whirling dervishes. Accordingly, I chose some oriental carpets for the background, and repeated the circular shapes of the hoops throughout each piece. These collages are mounted on 1" deep 14" x 18" wood panels, and are available for purchase.  Email me for the price and availability. Giclees are also available.
