“Self Portrait Of A Colored Man”

  
This piece is about the colored man. Mysterious he is. What motivates him to go on despite the fact his color makes him a target in society. What rules has society put in place for the colored man to follow ?

Walk this way, talk this way, be accepted by your counterparts. My colored man accept the gold Ora that surrounds you. Listen to the stories of your ancestors colored man. Search for the truth don’t let it find you. Have a curious mind. Be vigorous in your attempt to show the world that the world isn’t just black and white it’s more then that. It’s about all the colors.

This piece is the first piece I have completed for 2016 and is a symbol of the type of pathway I’m trying to reach within myself and with the people. Done in oil stick, acrylic paint and oil pastels.
