I chose to depict people in their raw forms of beauty, naturally expressing their gifts and how they generously give back to mankind. Hospitality, a gift given but not always received. Or reciprocated. This is the voice of my painting. Tanzanians are the most hospitable, welcoming people you may ever meet. They give despite their lack of having. The Ngoni and Sukuma people groups have welcomed us American foreigners into their homes and cooked their best food for their guests, often with the mindset there will be no leftovers. This is Mama Ukarimu cleaning the mchele (rice) which she bought from the soko (market). This hospitality is beauty found inside humanity, invisible, but crystal clear when performed.
