collage experimental

I am working on a series of 12″x12″ collages based on images of African woman. I would like to honor their dignity and beauty as they face sometimes dire life circumstances. I have always loved the colorful clothes that these beautiful women wear. Even in refugee camps, they look brightly arrayed and not down-trodden.
This is my first piece.
I am asking $500 for each work (they are done on cradled boards 2 inches thick–so no framing needed). I will donate 30% of my proceeds to the organization Light Gives Heat.
This painting has been sold.
