Old Lady at a Gugulethu Shebeen

Portrait of old lady at Cape Town Shebeen

Acrylic on canvas 70cm x 90cm

My friend Richard took the original photograph of this lady. It was a hot day and she was sitting dejectedly outside the pub. He approached her to ask if she minded her photograph being taken and as soon as she saw the camera she sat straight up and posed, beaming! It took a few moments for him to get this regal shot of her which I fell in love with.
