My Vision of Peace
A girl on the verge of adulthood can become the backbone of any society. She is also one of its most vulnerable members. This painting invokes a vision of strength for young women. The subject is self-possessed and vibrant with a pangolin resting on her shoulder. The symbolism of this armored animal draws from African cultures which uphold the pangolin for its powers of self protection. My painting is a call for a peace across all cultures that comes from upholding our girls, reminding them of their unique cultural histories and encouraging them to be tough.


Medium
Oil on Copper Plate

12 x 12"

The luminous quality of this painting comes from thin glazes with transparent open areas.
