Sketchbook Art

Well I have made it to Ghana. It has taken time to settle in. I still need to buy furniture to set up my studio so until that happens I am working in my sketchbook each Sunday.

Here are my most recent three pieces

One is a patterned tonal self-portrait, the other is a surreal “handscape” both of which I am planning to teach. The African mask is my first “African” themed art work based on our first mask purchase from the art market. The symbols at the back represent hope and greatness. The symbols are used on many things here in Ghana, especially textiles. They are called Adinkra symbols.
