This weeks item of the week was painted by EWI artist member and Entrepreneur Training for Success graduate, Naomie Belayneh. Naomie is an artist and painter from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. After graduating from the Addis Ababa Fine Art School, she attended the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio for a year. Naomie then moved to the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, where she has appeared in numerous exhibitions and displayed her work at various different venues. She has been a member of Empowered Women International since 2008. Naomie commented on her artistic process:
“I start with a sketch in my sketchbook. Once I finish that, I prime the wood and then apply sand to it. I let this dry for 24 hours, and then I paint the image on it. When that is finished, I spray varnish and wood stain on the back.”
This beautiful original piece of fine art is painted in acrylic on wood, featuring two sisters. The piece of wood measures 12 x 7 3/4 inches and there is a hook attachment on the back to allow for easy hanging.
