Miriam Slater new geisha painting of Rachel Brice
This painting of belly dancer Rachel Brice is Miriam Slater's most recent geisha painting (two more are in the works). It was finished in early 2011 and is the fourth portrait Slater has done of Rachel Brice who is one of the world's finest bellydancers - a pioneer in that genre. She is also a fashion icon, creating exotic fashions that are copied the world over. While in the painting her costume may seem to be quite exotic, when you see her in person, she looks just as fascinating. In the painting she is shown holding a butterfly with her students in the background against the skyline of San Francisco. She has to be seen to be appreciated and to take a look at her legendary dancing be sure to visit rachelbrice.com or go to youtube.
