This is a portrait of the artists sister in which her pose and expression exude pride and passion. Cara is a notable Canadian television news anchor and a great role model for Afro-Canadian women, and all young women who possess the pride and determination to accomplish their goals. This painting was subsequently entered into The Kingston Prize Portrait competition in 2009. This is an acrylic painting, with wooden beads added to represent her necklace. The color green brings strength of life and character to the piece.
