My visit to Zimbabwe was like going back to the beginning of time. It sounds corny but I could see horizons and sky in every direction. The lush land and brush were rich with color. Life vibrated within it all.
The visual and emotional impact on me was life changing. The subtlety of color, textures and light were somehow different here. Breathing was different. It felt pure.
The animals in nature were more impactful for me as an artist than I can say.
Oil or pastel seemed perfect mediums to convey both softness, depth and the vibrancy of color and light.
I will go back to Africa as it touched me deeply.
