Three Muses - Africa

The "Dark Continent" and its mysteries offers endless art opportunities.   I've always loved Nick Bantock's African pieces, and this one is inspired by his work.  Hopefully, you will enjoy visiting Africa and sharing your art expressions with us!   For a great book recommendation, see my blog here.       .................

  14. A very inspiring theme, and I'd love to join if I have time!

    However, I wish to let you know that I feel strongly against the use of the expression "Dark Continent" when speaking of Africa. Even in quotation marks, it is a remain of the Eurocentrist world view of the colonial era, and possibly insulting to many readers. You may want see an example of the recent public discussions on the term here: here

    I'm sure you didn't mean no harm, but this kind of things you need to be really considerate of in our global community!

  15. I thank Salla for her input, and apologize to any of our blog friends who might have been offended by the term. I used it in perfect innocence, having heard it my entire life without ever assuming any racial connotation whasoever. Again, my apologies.
