Flamenco Dancer Painting. La Alegria de Dios es Mi Fuerza! (The Joy of the Lord is My Strength !)
This is a giclee print on art paper of Paloma Rios, a Flamenco Dancer from Santa Barbara, California. She was the Spirit of Fiesta 2005, the lead Flamenco dancer in Santa Barbara that year. I like the angle of this painting, as if one is looking down on Paloma from above,as her dress, shawl, and skirt swirls around her! She's full of the joy of the Lord, isn't she!!! ( I was inspired by the work of photographer Mike Eliason from Santa Barbara.) Note: This is a canvas giclee of the original painting.
