a few more new paintings

the African sun was inspired by a poem which begins "the african sun is a frivolous child, so vivaceous, voluptous and wild...". Lest we forget is a reference to war, the poppies being from Flanders. "South African woman" can be lived with as a purple and red landscape, but actually has disturbing references to the amount of violence against women in this country, if one cares to look deeper.

These are all just lovely!

And yes, you're welcome to use my barn photo(s) as a basis for a painting!
