“Unto Us” holds a lot of meaning & memory for me. Of Africa and desert nomads, of my husband’s namesake who is the baby in this painting and of our own firstborn who arrived not long before. In the face of this mother can be seen the reserve the Wodaabe people prize so highly, but also courage and hope.
I painted this portrait with it’s strong Madonna & Child imagery to the music of Handel’s Messiah while practising for an upcoming Christmas Concert at St Peter’s Eastern Hill. The rhythms of “For Unto Us a Child Is Born” worked beautifully for painting the grasses!
