“The colour spectrum of humanity knows many hues, and beauty lives in each one. I make that clarification because I am not saying that only black is beautiful. The entire spectrum possesses beauty and that is what I hope you take away from this. The woman in the painting is a beautiful Kenyan whose inner and outer beauty are so perfectly balanced that once you know her you find yourself lost in her ever-watching eyes. If I could have found a way to capture the genuine kindness of her voice in this painting, you would be bathed in a kindness that is not often found in this millennium’s society.” — Yvonne Muinde
