Street Side Market, Lagos I, Oil on Board, 10" x 8"

This is another painting from my trip to Nigeria.

While at Lagos, most of the ​sub-urban streets all have sales people who sell whatever they can to keep body and soul together.

I just love the colours! It's what makes painting Nigerian scenes interesting!!

This was a street Side Market in Lagos where plantains are being sold and green leaf vegetables.

There is so much to paint in Nigeria, going around was like a revelation, it was like I just got a new set of eyes! 

Special Quote
"I'm willing to bet there are a lot of people you run into daily who don't even know you are an artist. If correct, you have to do something about it. If you want to be know as an artist, you have to tell people. And you start with everyone you know. Then, after all your current contacts know you are an artist, you have to get out there and meet more people."-Alyson B. Stanfield.

I love the Alyson's idea. But, after having told everybody that one is an artist, it must be the time to demonstrate it. Anyway, it sounds very compelling. Thanks for that beautyful picture from Nigeria!
