Trish Haye - "Esther"
Oil on Canvas
W: 420mm x H: 597mm x D: 38mm
This work is unframed
I met this lady in the grounds of the Castle of the Cape of Good Hope. She was part of a Venda choir group visiting Cape Town. I loved the colours of her outfit and the pride and dignity she exuded. She gave her permission for me to paint her. For me she represents all the Black women of South Africa, who raise their children, their neighbours children, other peoples children, their grandchildren, but they do so lovingly and without complaint. She has such dignity. I thank her and women like her who have been and still are the backbone of our nation.
