Working from foreground to background, I have captured the dramatic swirl of a turn during the beginning of a dance. This couple represents the beginning of romance as the tentative first steps are taken and they gradually become more comfortable with each other as a level of trust develops. I have incorporated the Sankofa symbol which represents “return to your roots” in African proverbs and also is heart shaped which represents love in American tradition. This is another of my positive couples series.
