Tabanca: A painful feeling of unrequited love
Carnival Tabanca is a tribute to a love lost that is now found in this painting. This painting portrays 6 black women, all in mas costumes in various positions of motion. The paint strokes visually portray the movement of each woman just like we would see on the road Carnival day. On this 36"x 24" wooden gallery style canvas, the costumes are adorned with with dried flowers to replace what would be feathers on real mas costumes as well as over 400 real Swarovski Crystals. These are secured on to the painting before a finished top coat of gold glittered resin seals the painting which prevents any of the flowers or crystals to ever detach. This piece is really one of a kind.
