I love the pose and lighting on this painting. The beautiful model, Georgia, wrapped in the shimmering fabric of a belly dancing veil just grabs the light and bounces it back at the viewer. The face and other parts of the figure merge gradually into the dark background. The edges of the gallery wrap canvas are painted in neutral tones and the work comes ready to hang.
