Artist's Description

The bouncy steps, lively leg kicks and the kaleidoscope of colour from the twirling skirts of these Polesian Ukranian Folk Dancers is an elegant feast for the eyes. A perfect gift for the dancer in your family!

This image is from an oil painting I created in March 2011. It was the runner up in an art competition sponsored by Experience The Culture , a Ukranian organization based in British Columbia. The organization tasked local BC artists to create an original artwork to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Veselka Dance, a Victoria-based dance group. I was inspired by a high energy dance called the Polesian, originating in Polesia in the Northern Ukraine/Southern Belarus.
