Capturing it on Canvas: Two Beautiful Hoop Paintings

 FreesiaFairee  hoops for her friend who then creates these marvelous paintings inspired by the movement of the hoop. I love the fluid lines and sketchy feel of the work. They really capture the silhouette and flow of a hooper lost in spin. I love that this looks like an expression of hoop dance as opposed to someone playing around with hula hoops. 

It can be a difficult thing to make 'serious' looking hoop art. The monochromatic tones and quick lines of these capture such a lovely, genuine experience. I put the feelers out to find out more about the artist and whether or not the works are for sale!
