Frieda Maselela is an Ndebele and lives on our farm. She and her husband settled here about 30 years ago, and have brought up their children and grandchildren here on the farm. I’ve painted this portrait from a photograph which I took of her during her daughters initiation, several years ago. Portraits are a real challenge – and can be a source of great agony and ecstasy! This one is a good likeness, and caught her patient half-smile nicely. It’s painted in oils on a stretched canvas.
