"This delicate painting is a sibling to Lounging Lei Ladies. Inspired by the beautiful dances found in Polynesian and Hawaiian culture, this awaiting dancer is preparing for her opening. The painting was created to celebrate Pacific Islander history and capture the beauty of candid moments." ~ Mae Waite
