Earlier this year Margaret Bowland won the prestigious Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2009 People’s Choice Award for “Portraits of Kenyetta and Briana.”  Of her inspiration she says, “My girls became…images requesting acceptance and protection through ritual purification. The painting is a scene of victory over these rites. My bride and her doubled flower girl look out at us. True, tradition covers them in white, but who they are shines through as their eyes meet ours.”
