Always keeping her babe close to her, a woman balances a bowl filled with palm wine to sell at the market. "Palm wine is an alcoholic beverage brewed from the sap of various species of palm trees, such as coconut. It's very much enjoyed in the southern part of Ghana," says K. Baka as he reveals his inspiration. Working with acrylics, he paints the portrait of this beautiful woman with respectful artistry. Includes card matting.
