Congolese Girl

Oil On Canvas 20"x16"
This portrait was inspired by an article (original photograph by Aubrey Wade) about the Eastern Congo and Kindu,a hospital that had been reduced to little more than a mortuary through the combined ravages of civil war disease and malnutrition.That was five years ago and since then Merlin, a UK specialist rapid-action aid agency has supported the hospital and built a legacy of improved healthcare and hope.
