Portrait of a Girl on a Chair

Stefani Martin sent me this photo a few months ago.

She bought the painting from Fred Mogubgub in the mid-80s.  It reminded her of her daughter.

This is more a straight portrait than most of what I've seen from Mogubgub.  In her face there is a hint of the otherworldly seen in his Spirit Paintings, but her posture and her clothing mark her a very real.
