A Game

My two big paintings are ready.
I would love to have comments from
all my blogger friends.The painting below
is about a game which is very commonly
 played here in Ghana,called oware.
It is a "count and capture" game.This
is actually played throughout Africa,
with different names and slightly different
 rules.Other names for this game are
mancala,ayo, omweso, enkeshui or aweet.

Acrylic on canvas,80*80 cms
This is an experiment with my color pour technique. 
Can anyone suggest me some good title for this?

  3. Gorgeous paintings. The game looks like "palanguzhi" played in Kerala.
    I would love to learn about your journey becoming a self taught artist.
