I painted this portrait of my dear friend Kristine, who is a force of nature! She's bold, fun, always eager for new experiences... I admire her so much. I painted this from a photo I took of her (a rather blurry photo) at a fantastic warehouse party in the depths of Brooklyn, dressed like happy gypsies, dancing our hearts out to thumping, all-consuming house music.
I think this captures her sensuality and vitality and the crazy, swirling color of the evening. The name comes from her boho dance of the seven veils.
