More, More Caribbean Ladies Dancing

















Solo Dance, Oil on Canvas 34" x 48"   

Dance Times Two, Acrylic 36" x 48"  


Big Drum Carriacou, Acrylic 36" x 48" 


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.

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.
