Rhythm and energy

In a previous blog post I mentioned taking risks with a new painting. In fact it was two paintings. I think of them as being almost twins because I painted them simultaneously step by step. They are on two different papers (because I always need to experiment, of course).

I went back to my South African roots on these. And since there’s been such bad press about the country recently, I thought it might be time for this post.

These paintings express my feeling about African Rhythm

…. and African Energy. They both pervade the continent and cross geographical and political boundaries.

And if you have four minutes to spare, this is kinda fun too.
