Bessy’s Blues by Taeesha Muhammad, Acrylic and Oil on Canvas, 2021, 12 x 12 inches
The Women of Grace collection is a series that focuses on the strength and magnetism of a woman. The way women live in the moment, the past, and the future all at once is a skill that has always intrigued me. This series shows the energy, style, and culture women have as they move about the world. Ebony is a part of a tryptic.
