11x14in. Watercolor Portrait
A watercolor portrait of Bob Marley I painted this summer at Denver’s Black Arts Festival. I wanted to see if I could create a piece that was something like a poster starting with a black and white image of the reggae legend. I chose these song lyrics because they have spoken to me over the years as a reminder to trust in myself and my ability to fulfill my own dreams, not to rely on gatekeepers to determine my fate.
