My painting, “African Mother in a Blue Dress” won the People’s Choice Award this month in my art group’s monthly competition. The group is called the Torrance Artists’ Guild.
This painting was part of a three-painting series of African mothers and their infants. The other two paintings are “African Mother in a Yellow Dress” and African Mother in a White Dress”. Later, I expanded my series to include mothers and infants who were not African.
