Gullah Woman Slicing Bread

2.6.2019-007 Gullah Woman slicing bread

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.

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.
