Suzanne Stewart, Austin painter, has joined the blogging world. It seems such a stretch, but I would like to share some insights I have gained. My painting experiences have formed a new and exciting path. Please share your comments with me. What will survive of us is love.

The Go-Go, South African Grandmother
This is my second version of the grandmother from Africa. They do all the heavy lifting and are, therefore, dubbed the Go-Goes! I can't figure how to make that plural! Since there are so few men around and since a huge percentage of the population died from AIDS, all of the work is done by these courageous women who run the orphanage. What a desperate situation! Wonder how I would be in such a situation.
I did this one in Denver also but the drawing is a bit smaller. Used a different color paper. It is difficult to see next to the earlier post, but I think this lady seems more dubious.
