Misconception

This artwork is for an African awareness campaign. It also reflects my feelings about my continent. Its based on the misconceptions some folks have about Africa. The woman holding her child is suffering and impoverished, which is the concept many have about Africa, but her reflection is happy and well fed which is the reality of many Africans. Most Africans don’t live half naked in huts and trees. They are intelligent, well fed, well clothed and well housed people. I went with wide tipped brushes to give the artwork a realistic look.
