ABOUT THIS PAINTING

This work of art is a celebration of women everywhere – and a recognition of female strength and beauty. I was inspired to paint this after reading Angela Davis’ book titled: “Women, Race and Class.”  The Light That Shines recently sold to a collector in Oakland, CA.

My intention was to make a beautiful painting of a woman surrounded in beauty.  The light that shines refers to the vibrancy of color and swirling energy of plants, trees, sun rays, and flowers.  The light also emanates from within her, as does all true beauty.  I chose to paint her in a casual denim top, an attire without pretension. Her Bantu knots are lovingly styled.
