We often hear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, even when beauty is beheld it comes with conditions. It’s either thin, muscular, curvy, petite, or tall to fit another person’s liking.
Feminine Bushido (In honor of Demita Usher aka Brown Betty)
I went on my weekly walk with my friend, Tammy, and shared with her that I felt I had ruined my painting. I had been told that the original outlay was beautiful. Now, I was feeling guilty that I may have lost my foremothers’ message forever.
My DNA test indicated my Angolan heritage. I have so much to learn about my African family history. For now, I’ll allow my paintings tell my stories, hopefully, spiritually connecting me to my ancestors.
