A Powerful Painting

Oooh I just loved creating this image. My Amazing friend reached out to me with a picture of her children at a protest. She asked me to do something amazing with it. The photo itself was powerful but I wanted to give it that black excellence by making it drip in liquid gold. 

Why Gold and Why Africa? 

The African trade is dominated by its diverse natural resources due to the abundance. Gold and diamonds are among the main exported commodities of African nations. South Africa is the world's biggest producer of gold?

That's why I decided on Gold..... BLACK LIVES MATTER goes beyond the United States. Its a cry to the World and I wanted that to come together in this painting.
