"Dancing Aliens" original oil on canvas abstact piece. This captivating piece accents any wall. Ther is no brush work in the piece. Inspired by a visit to an ear nose and throat doctor. How did he get to "Dancing Aliens" from there? Only your hair dresser knows! Another strong abstract presentation of colors and forms that make up a truly wonderful piece for hanging in any room or hall way. This style piece can also, be commissioned as a personal gift. Enjoy the experience. May I have this dance?
