Description When the coronavirus disease made us change and accept life as we never had known it......' Today I am surrendering to a new lifestyle of being stripped of routines that have kept me relatively sane for years. I will make different routines. I surrender to the fact that I need to accept no physical contact. I accept that I need to learn to use the internet to take dance and excercise class. Today I accept that I have to grocery shop and cook for my parents and kids and I accept that they will be hard to tolerate because they are more helpless than I am and more scared than I am. I accept that I must constantly take deep breaths and start my day over many times during the day. Today I accept that everything will be totally different and I will be ok with that. Today I will be grateful I have food to eat, shelter, electricity, heat, clothes, running water and family and friends. I can walk and I can see. I AM HEALTHY and alive to appreciate this adventure. Thank you for this learning experience.'

Born under a full moon on a hot night in Paris, Luma Rouge spent her childhood dancing at the ankles of artists, burlesque performers and bohemians. One night she was sitting backstage at the Moulin Rouge, when a temperamental painter stormed past in a fury, throwing his sketchbook and charcoal to the floor as he left. Luma picked up the book, pondered the luscious curves of the women and men walking offstage, and began to draw.
Since that fateful night, Luma has devoted herself to capturing the beauty and danger of the female and male form. Her favorite subjects are strippers, burlesque dancers and fetish kings and queens — strong, sensual performers who will keep you on your toes and leave you begging for more.
