Name The Painting and Win a Prize

I've been following Enzie Shahmiri's blog for awhile now as she posts paintings by Orientalists and I like them. I've learned quite a lot from the daily posts and have enjoyed seeing the works by various artists of days gone by. She is an accomplished artist herself and has been working on a painting of the above photograph she staged and took of world renowned belly dancer, Tiffany Bisconer, and is looking for a name for it. All you have to do is name her painting and you will win. Here is what Enzie says:

ATTENTION!
This will be an interactive project and I will give a drawing of one of the objects in the painting to the person who can come up with a cool title for this painting. So as you visit and see the developments, start thinking of some titles. All you have to do is leave me a comment on any post that says "Tiffany". When the painting is completed the person whose name suggestion I will choose, will receive the drawing. If several people should suggest the same name, I will have my son draw a name and announce the winner. Good luck!


Come on friends, lets get this painting named!

Cool - also like idea of painting a belly dancer without showing her belly.

Pretty amazing props in photo too.

Wonder how Tiffany would look color inverted?

Hi Bobbie! What a joy to be back among my friends! I will definitely visit Enie's site. I love the Orientalists' imagination of that world we never knew. Thanks!

Very interesting picture - I saw it on enzie's blog a while back and wondered what it was that intrigued me. Now I realise that she isn't the shape of belly-dancers I have seen myself, more of a modern girl, I guess, not so built for comfort.... that gives more angle and contrast to the picture.
