Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is sometimes referred to as a game. It's as fluid of a motion as I've ever seen. The Santa Barbara Brazilian Carnaval had demonstrations of Capoeira in 2008 and 2009, and this is the first of three paintings I did. I like the checkerboard floor with the other capoeiristas watching, playing instruments and clapping in time.
