"Sambista Beauty 14"
The 14th painting in my Sambista Beauty series of my friend Jennifer Parker from the Santa Barbara Brazilian Carnaval, 2014. What I try to capture in this is the motion, vibrancy, and atmosphere of the dancer. It took her 3 months to make the costume and I spent a lot of time on that. I made the painting three feet high so I could celebrate the dancer from tip of the toe to the highest feather. I put the drummers and conductor in this for the first time to create the additional feel of the motion and the celebration of the music. I also like the mural os Salvador in the background with the girl in white throwing her arms out. This is celebration of Brazil and Brazilian culture, and the first of these paintings to have the Brazilian flag.
