Forever Friends Has Been Reworked.

Forever Friends, March 2012

I have run out of canvases therefore have to make a trip to Acrylix (our only art supplies shop here in Ghana) this week. When I run out of canvases I tend to reflect upon the old ones and repaint them or just paint another image on top. There were a few things in the original version of this which were annoying me. I didn’t get much of a response on Facebook from my friends so figured it was not really liked so have come up with an even better version. 🙂 (well I think so anyway)

I have kept the women because I loved their dresses and colours but decided to put them in a doorway. To make the doorway interesting I added Adinkra symbols representing hope and beauty on the wall in purple, which creates balance with the dress on the left. The wall space still seemed a little empty to me so  I combined my favourite fabric designs from the “Meet Me There” painting.

I also added some of Esther’s gorgeous  fabrics for the design and texture. Now I am really happy with the colours, texture and composition. Eventually I would like to focus on the fashion, beads and fabrics of Ghana but that can be another series later. Hope you like it better than the first version.
