Gullah Standing Woman

The Breeze Magazine of the Lowcountry featured my Gullah  art in its April edition. The magazine cover used one of my paintings and four more were featured in the article which was called “The Gullah Art of R. S. Perry.”  I was thrilled to have this attention from such a wonderful magazine!

This  10 x 8 painting features a Gullah woman.  It is sold but you can view others and get  more information by going to my Daily Paintwork gallery.  Put my name R. S. Perry in the artist search line or you can click here.

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.
