December 2014

I have mixed feelings of joy and sadness whenever I sell my paintings but the pure pleasure the new owners derive caps it all. The award winning painting ‘Market Woman Selling Tomatoes’ was sold soon after it was exhibited at the Mall Galleries in July. I received the following from its proud new owner…

I received a large, well-packed parcel this morning, that I had gifted myself! Anne B-H’s “Tomato Seller” has given me the sort of delight that ice-cream sprinkles, and sugar cane at the beach used to bring me as child, before I knew to mask the full tingles of pure happiness. 

My painting (I’m very territorial and referred to it this way even before I owned it!) is a reminder of who I am; the place I come from, the visual cues and rich saturated colours that markets all over Ghana are. I love the openness in the face my “Tomato Seller” – her strength, kindness and confidence. And the turquoise and reds… I feel at home with her, as if I am coming home to her, and as she will be greeting me every time I come into my hallway, I’m happy she’s from where I’m from. 

Anne, will you put up a photo of it? I am so very proud to own this. Thank you.

    I just recieved “Waiting for the Catch”. It was shipped from the UK to the US and it arrived in one piece, in beautiful condition and it looks wonderful. I love it. The colours and the patterns of the fabics the women are wearing bring back memories of my childhood. I have recieved a number of compliments on the picture already and I have had it for just 2 days. I am really pleased (thrilled might be a better term) with the picture. It almost feels like I have a small piece of Ghana in my home

    “Loved the picture, exceeded expectations. The delivery was efficient and I was impressed with the excellent packaging, so no damage occurred.i liked the ability to browse on the Internet, and especially the rooms so you could have a sense of the size and impact a picture may have when hung. Found the site through google. Would be great if you did a basic framing service.”
