THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In the Dark Skinned Painting, a woman sits facing the right side of the painting. All that the viewer is able to see is her face, which has mostly been hidden away by her dark hair. The hair extends around her head, mostly thrown over one shoulder. The ends of her long locks seem to be carried by the breeze and are filled with color. The background, which is hectic in terms of color, pattern and texture, seems to suggest the hardships and the struggle that women of color go through, even when they are just simply existing as themselves.
