This body of work represents a theme that has seemed to be consistent with every stage of my career.  The image of black women in particular, when done right, can be revolutionary in and of itself.  These paintings have in common that they are portraits that celebrate the beauty, strength and dignity of the subjects.  Some of them are depictions of the goddess Osun from the Yoruba tradition while others simply convey a radiance that gives them the air of a goddess.
