Dear Friends and followers of my art..
I am pleased to announce that my original painting “The Colors of Morning” has been donated to the Rape Crisis Center of Savannah for their annual GALA. There was a min. bid required of 1000.00 for this painting valued at 2200.00
The “Colors of Morning” is a 48×48 canvas hung diagonally which makes it 72″x72″ The diamond shape allowed the artist the maximum space for depicting a cast net being thrown early in the day with sunlight being prismed off the water and reflected everywhere. The net caster is a stylized Gullah-Geechee woman handling her net with grace and skill. The cast net method of fishing was brought to the Low Country by the slaves imported from West Africa and remains in use to this day. It is but one of many items and skills which the Gullah-Geechee ancestors brought and used to improve their lives (and ours) throughout the Coastal shore and Sea Islands of Georgia and South Carolina.
