Left Alone

I try to learn or try something new everyday. Doing so keeps my mind sharp and spirit young. This is my attempt at monochromatic art. I still have much to learn, but this is so much fun! ($75, Color Pencil, 8.5″x11″, Unframed)

Sara’ngetti

Reaching out to my African roots happens daily. My reflection in the mirror reminds me of my rich heritage, my talents that I have inherited from my fore-fathers and mothers. To stand free and tall while embracing their love lifts my spirits. I feel beautiful with every stroke of the pencil. ($350 USD, 8.5″x11″, Portrait, Unframed)

Serenity Natural

I spent today creating images that depict my emotions. I felt beautifully natural. I felt fabulous. Serenity Natural stands on the shores as the crystal blue river flows by. The copper sun flashes its gentle rays upon Serenity Natural’s cheeks. There is nothing more gorgeous than a soul at peace. ($350 USD, 8.5″x11″, Portrait, Unframed)

Herizon

It’s always a great feeling to stand within the confines of nature, to be part of its love and be embraced by its spirit. “Herizon” is my visual testament to the inner peace one can have when living according to nature’s rhythm. ($350 USD, 8.5″x11″, Portrait, Unframed)

Elements of Nature

Yesterday, was a very artistically productive day. I wanted to paint representations of the four elements of nature: Air, Fire, Earth, and Water. I began with basic acrylic paintings; but soon realized more was needed to convey my messages. So, I opted to use glue, old newspapers, and plaster.

Unconditional Beauty

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

Feminine Bushido (In honor of Demita Usher aka Brown Betty)

Bu · shi · do   / ‘booSHē, dō /  Noun: The code of honor and morals developed by the Japanese samurai. The code of the samurai stressing unquestioning loyalty and obedience and valuing honor above life.

Goddess Forest

This painting was done during one of my Bottle and Bodega Meetup group events. I had never tried my hand at painting a nature scene and this one turned out perfectly!

The Spirits of My Foremothers-Completed

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.

African Sun

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.
