What’s the story behind this piece?
This piece was my first oil on canvas. It was inspired by a trip I had made to Salvador da Bahia (Brazil) some years back where I was dazzled by a beautiful Baiana (woman of Bahia) in her traditional apparel; a white, long, voluminous lace skirt and headscarf, and an abundance of jewelry (which I didn’t include here).
She was making and selling acarajé, which is a mix of black eyed peas, shrimp and spices formed into balls and fried in palm oil. I bought some from her and it was a delight my taste buds are still craving to this day.
