Alvin Ailey Wade in the Water, Bohoy pastel

The first time I saw Alvin Ailey's "Revelations-Take me to the Water" I never put it out of my mind. Undulating, athletic bodies, white on white on white: ruffled dresses, a billowing 'cloud', a parasol on high; all on floating silk ribbons of 'river,' dancing to the pulsating spiritual "Wade in the Water."  

This year for my birthday I needed to return to the water and see it again.  

I won't wash it out of my mind.

Pastel, 16x20, unframed, $495.
