• Image of She Dances

Title: She Dances
Size: 36" x 24"
Type: Original Oil Painting on stretched canvas
Based on a poem written by the artist that bears the same name:

By Y. Shabazz

She’s so beautiful,
so young,
so misunderstood.
So into things.
She shakes her inheritance
for fear of want.
Suffering for more suffering
never knowing her own beauty…
She’s never been told,
never knew love,
and was never taught.
So she dances to escape,
and spends her inheritance
on fleeting things,
till there’s nothing left to spend.

This painting will have texture unique just to this painting, a fingerprint that can never be repeated and each brush stroke is unique and impossible to repeat. Each painting I create is one of a kind.
