naked lady

i am fascinated by art. art of all kinds. it is not limited to only one discipline.

when i was in africa, i was intrigued by the various galleries that housed many forms of weaving called kente handmade usually by women sitting on the ground working on looms. it is amazing and i am privileged to have several pieces.

i walked into one gallery where i laid eyes on this "naked lady" and knew she had to be mine. she was the beginning of my art collection and i value the simplicity the artist used when painting her. i see different things each time i look at her. she is sitting on what is typically known in ghana as a chief's stool. isn't she lovely?

happy day.....
