New Painting* – Mask of Iyoba on gold background – Acrylic on canvas

Hello! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these difficult times, I know the impact of the Covid-19 virus is affecting people in severe ways right now, and I think we could all do with a virtual group hug to help lessen the difficulties. So here (((( blog readers )))) a virtual hug for you all. :)

I have been continuing my journey with painting on canvas by producing this artwork.
It features an ivory mask on a gold background that I have seen on my visits to the British Museum for over a decade.

It originates from the Kingdom of Benin and is called “The Mask Of Iyoba’
I’ve always wondered what other great works the artist created…

It feels great to be finally working on canvas, I’m really looking forward to producing some new pieces and delight in the fact that the 3 paintings below were all blank canvases a few months ago.
