Paola was dancing at the first SB Brazilian Carnaval I attended and did this magnificent flag dance. I love tall dancers and Paola was a full six feet tall. This is one of two paintings I did of her, and the photograph that I took and used for this painting was also used for the Carnaval poster a couple years later.
