Ladies of Eid

Acrylic and Fabric paint on canvas, 20 x 24 inches, August 2014. This work celebrates the beauty and diversity of Muslim women on the one of the biggest holidays of the Islamic calendar, Eid al Fitr. Eid al Fitr is celebrated after the month of fasting, called Ramadan. Muslims are encouraged to attend Eid prayers and put on their best clothing. At the Eid prayer, many ladies were colorful clothing from their cultural origins--caftan, turbans, abayas in glorious colors make for a wonderful fashion show.
