In my eyes...
June 5, 2019
In my eyes... you are beautiful!
When I paint you, I no longer notice that you are poor. I don't see that your hand-me-down dress is dirty and shabby. In my eyes I only see the beautiful girl that you are, dressed in vibrant, new colours, daintily holding your dress so that it does not sweep the African soil when you walk the forest path.
