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.
