I recently had someone ask me what my avatar is. I never thought it may look confusing to others, but I guess for some, it isn't easy to see. It's a hula dancer. Do you think I should change my avatar? Does it catch your eye or confuse you?
Nope It catches the eye but I just thought it was a painting now that I see it properly I get it It surely is a hula dancer. That's a garland I thought it was a necklace and the one on the head looked like some ancient crown
Thank yoU! The garland is called a haka lei (head lei). It was made on Photoshop as a digital graphic--not a painting, but that is super cool that it looks like one. Thank you for commenting. I didn't realize some people had trouble seeing it.
What may be confusing at first glance is he golden circle in the background. It almost makes the avatar look Egyptian or even religious.
I recognized it as a hula dancer with a haku lei on her head, a flower lei around her neck and what looks like a sun in the background. Maybe it's my frame of reference, but I think it's beautiful.
I would have been a little confused as I am not familiar with Hawaii'n (spelling?) culture. Just as there are many aspects of Australian culture many folk are also not aware of.
I thought that it was a religious picture with a halo. Now it makes more sense!

I have been on hubpages almost two months and I just enjoy writing. Is there others here who just want to write and are not concerned about the money?

Whew! When I started, I didn't think it was possible. But here I am with 100 Hubs complete. Some aren't all that great but I have learned a lot. Number 100 is my longest by far. I hope it becomes my most viewed since it seems like it should be incredibly helpful.

I'll admit that in my youth there were a number of words that sounded big and impressive. I loved hearing them and I would use them without always knowing what they meant. Sometimes they were in context so no one noticed other times it was painfully obvious.Words I used as a kid that I didn't know...
