Images of South America

24" x 18" - Oil on Canvas

I recently finished this piece for an upcoming show "Images of south America" to be held at the Charleston County Library in September.  My painting features a woman at Carnaval in Brazil, and the Olodum drummers.  Olodum offers cultural activities to young people, largely centered around music.   Founded in 1979, its stated aims are to combat racism,  to encourage self-esteem pride among Afro Brazilians, and to fight for civil rights for all marginalized groups.  Click here and turn up your speakers for a peek at Olodum
