Belly Dancer!

This gal is painted from a photo ref posted on WetCanvas!
I wanted to create a sense of movement (easy to do with those hips!) and fun in my version. This piece is 8x8" on unstretched canvas.

Belly Dancer

Her subtle perfume,
like a desert monsoon
An Egyptian mirage
with jeweled d├ęcolletage
The desert moon swerves
to her undulating curves
The Saharan night ignites
into sudden midnight light
as she spins and she turns
her belly dance, it burns
into hearts and souls
of all who see
her dance of eternal
