For the next month I plan to show some small paintings of Gullah people. These paintings were inspired by research my husband did for a magazine article on Maum Celie, a great Gullah friend of his uncle who lived in South Carolina. Maum Celie was a woman of great faith who also had the gift of healing. Several pictures of Gullah are already on my on-line gallery. Click here if you are interested.
This Gullah woman is mending and listening to her radio. This is a small 6 x 6 inch painting on a substrate called Gessobord, which resembles masonite but with a coated surface that is quite receptive to paint! For more information on this painting, please click here.
A year ago I planted zinnia seeds right in our front yard and was amazed that I had hundreds of flowers, some as large as tea cups! I was able to paint 5 or 6 paintings of these flowers and for a while they became my favorite plants. This painting is 8″ x 10″. It is still available. If you are interested, click here.
This is another small 5 x7 painting on a canvas panel. These illustrations were inspired by a magazine article my husband wrote regarding the Gullahs in South Carolina. You can learn more about this painting by clicking here.
