New portrait of Haile Selassie I
This summer I was lucky enough to hang my first large portrait of Haile Selassie I In a location that was very fitting. I am so grateful to be able to create and share art in this time and place, and to experience the message of reggae music. Thus, I have parted with the old piece and I have Painted a new portrait of Haile Selassie I, when he was crowned Negus Tafari, in 1928. This oil painting ~6x10', is dedicated to the strength of my partner, Lisa Kim, who constantly yet effortlessly shows me the way of Jah!
