Hula girls and other folk dancers! Hand drawn, Hand Painted. MAILED 3/1/12

Swap due date: February 24
Sign up/Withdraw date: none, just communicate
Number of cards: 3:3
Number of participants: 12
(2 International players welcome, I will cover your return postage!)
Medium: Hand drawn or hand painted only, stylizing is up to you.
No prints, copies, or digitals allowed for this swap!

ANY folkdancer that inspires you, will work for this swap! Hula girls, bellydancers, cloggers etc. Folk dancers come from all countries!
Hawaiian Hula dance is a beautiful dance form which displays grace, beauty, power and honors the ancestors.
Many folkdances are done by the people of a culture and represent daily life, are done to celebrate or to story-tell legends and histories.
Bellydancers, tango dancers, cloggers, native American dancers, and SO many more styles, fall into this catagory.
Color, movement, costuming and the beauty of these dance forms make them a wonderful subject for artwork!
p.s. Inspiration can be found by doing an image search of folk dancers from (pick a county)
example: 'folk dancers from America' or 'Folkdancers from Turkey' or simply type in a dance form 'hula' or 'bellydance'

Welcome SunTrade and MelanieS!! This means our swap is full!

MelanieS-OMG! I am a Bellydancer and Hawaiian Hula and Tahitian dancer too!!! We should get together and DANCE!!! :yes:

And TF brings up a valid point about the deadline...the cards must get to me by Feb 24th. This is so that I can have them out to you by March 10. Ok, so that's my first flub, lol. I got corrected by a moderator when I posted the swap. I changed the date at the top to Feb. but forgot to alter my written rules section. JUST NOW, I made the correction in the swap info. Thanks for the help TF!!

TF Balding
01-12-2012, 08:37 PM
That's the thing about Shazhaadee's work, it's always full of graceful movement. I think the fact that's she's a dancer must influence that paint brush, too. :wubclub: Always beautiful work, girl!

shahzaadee
01-15-2012, 09:24 PM
Ahhh, Thanks friend!
