Blue Dancer

Blue Dancer, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

During the day, she works in the Duty Free shop at Bangkok Airport.  At night she works in Doll House bar on Soi Cowboy.  Her mother, sister and sister’s two kids live in Sukothai, a place full of Buddha statues and temples a thousand years old.  She makes 30,000 Baht a month, sending half to her mother and sister. She tries to go with customers she likes, who know how to smile.  An Australian guy her to fly to Sydney for a week but she said no.  She doesn’t want to give up her daytime job.  It’s what keeps her life intact.
