Beautiful, outstanding painting. Pls. tell me the relationship of this painting with Blue Boy. Maybe I am ignorant but i don't get the connection. In any case, I admire all your entries on Fine Art America. Your talent and creative style are impressive. Your admirer, Anne

Hi Joyce! Another wonderful piece. Rich colors and as always, interesting design are the hallmarks of your body of work. And of course your art is infused with meaning beyond the obvious. Hah! and there's that moon.

Artist's Description

After Gainsborough, famous for "Blue Boy", this piece reflects on the absence of images in art history books and museums that show people of color, unless they are in included as slaves or servants and not the centerpiece of the artworks. This is changing, but the images that are getting notice are not always considered great improvement over the lack.
