This was a a commision I received and have just finished (July2009).

I have framed them in ornate gilded frames that are over the top, oppulent and smack of abundance.

I loved painting these paintings and I feel that I will definately paint more Black goddesses.

The brown tones of their skin work so well with my colour usage.

When one thinks of Africa- it is colour, the land, the fruit,the people, their clothes, the languages, the sunshine and the politics.

I hope I have captured the essence of the innate joy, not the angst of this continent, and especially that of the people.
