the dancer 50x60cm

"Beauty and truth are usually more charming unveiled!" was the beginning of the description of my other nude "Unveiled 80x30cm", and thinking for a title for this one the word unveilled ... made me think of the "dance of veils", made me think of Salome... Yet the historic anchor-point was not to my liking as well as the fact that while painting I thought of nothing the like... In the end it's just a dancer! This again made me think of Tina Turner's "private dancer"... I'm a mess, I feel awkward with nude, I guess, although they are beautiful!... Anyway, so, I present to you "The Dancer".[A.R.]
