“Kande” is a portrait of a young African woman in traditional dress. Her head is covered in a patterned scarf that is blue with rows of circles and other geometric patterns in red, green, yellow and white. Dangling from her ears are large gold earring hoops. She is wearing three necklaces, each a different length, made of colorful beads. There are several strands of beads hanging from her hair as well. Although not visible, her hair is probably braided. She has her left arm raised and there is a gold bangle on the wrist. Her skin is not a uniform color. There are crease marks that are a darker pigment than the rest of her chocolate colored skin. She is wearing a plain black dress. The background has an African style motif as a border. Leslie Clark travels the world and finds inspiration for her artwork from the many cultures she has experienced.
