Anything and everything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Drawing portraits involves assembling all the senses of the human body, to be able to feel what the image was feeling the moment the picture was taken. It is about our feelings towards the person we are drawing as we observe their facial features and sense their mood, comparing them with ours. Trying to feel and get into the mood of what the person is feeling, helps us to experience for a moment the life force of the person we are drawing and hence, attempt to represent this force. This helps not only to get the image right but also get the mood of the image right.

A painting of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah (Ghana's first President after colonialism) on waste sachet water bags. 2005 plastic waste sachet water bags were used in the execution of this work. 

Even though national coverage for improved sanitation has increased from 4% in 1993 to 12.4% in 2008, reducing the proportion of the population without access to improved sanitation will reach 21.2% by 2015 instead of 52%, while the proportion of urban population with access to improved sanitation will be 23.4% instead of 55% by 2015. In the rural areas, only 20.6% would have access to improved sanitation instead of 50.5%.
From the statistics, it is clear that Ghana will not be able to achieve its Millennium Development Goal 7. The situation is bad but not completely hopeless. We as a nation can at least bridge the gap through recycling.
