Betty Acen created this sweet scene of a family's activities. A mother and daughter are coming home with bananas while a girl pours grain into a basket and a toddler plays in the yard. The rich colors of this 7" x 5" piece would be a lovely focal point on a tote, pillow, or book cover.

Betty lives in Parombo, a small village in Northwest Uganda on the border with the Congo.  In Betty's words: “Praise God.  I am a new comer and I know I am already blessed.  I am a widow with six children.  They are schooling and I am paying their school fees in primary and secondary, but I am a peasant.”
