I have always been fascinated by nomadic tribes. Maybe I have some Gypsy or Tuareg blood in me, possibly both? and that is why I have moved to so many parts of the United States and love to travel so much. I've also always been attracted to a specific blue shade, one that is often found in Morocco, Tunisia, and the one used on the domes and details of the buildings of Oia on the island of Thira (Santorini) and Therasia in Greece. The color is often referred to as Greek Blue or Moroccan Indigo.
In researching nomadic ethnic groups, I came across the Tuareg people, "The Tuareg people are a large Berber ethnic group that principally inhabit the Sahara in a vast area stretching from far southwestern Libya to southern Algeria, Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso. Traditionally nomadic pastoralists, small groups of Tuareg are also found in northern Nigeria." according to Wikipedia.
What I was especially drawn to in my research, is that the Tuareg are often referred to as “The Blue People” for centuries because of their fabulous flowing turbans and robes. The indigo dye rubs off on the skin, leaving a blue cast. Tuareg clans move around in a harsh climate, and their nomadic travels are determined by the seasons and the environment, not political boundaries. So, I decided a Tuareg girl would be my muse, wrapped in this beautiful indigo-blue shade.
