These are some very popular paintings.  At least 4 regional calendars are coming out in 2015 where these paintings of  ladies will be included. Yay!  More dance, more colour, more traditional culture.

More Caribbean Girls Dancing

After a couple of visits to Carriacou recently the big drum has found its way into the work--the colour, movement, rhythm, african tradition, these dancers just followed on.

She danced in, then she danced out.

Susan Mains, Big Drum Dancer, 46" x 46" Oil on Canvas 2014

Spent some time in Carriacou, watching the Big Drum Dances, and this young lady danced on to my canvas in a heavy impasto of oil.  Then she danced out, on her way to her new home.  More Caribbean Dancing Girls to come.

Back to Roots

No matter where I wander in terms of artistic expression, for example, video art, I always come back to my painting roots, and to my love of Grenada and the Caribbean.  Cocoa, Breadfruit, and the Carenage-- essential.
