Original oil on canvas portrait of hoodoo women in virtual frame. Copyright c. 2011
My portrait of a magically inclined family of women who lived by the waterside in Louisiana long ago. The youngest child holds up Simbi’s cross, another young girl holds Papa Legba’s keys, the keys to the spirit world. Their home is a Creole townhouse situated upon an open field near a graveyard, where their ancestors reside.
