Easter in Mamelodi

Have you ever seen such a good sale on something that you thought "how could I not buy's too good a deal NOT to" ?

That's the way I felt about this moment I somehow managed to capture on camera.
There was so much joy in this woman and in the s too good NOT to paint.
I had to. Such joy is beauty.

Easter weekend at Power House Church in Mamelodi, South Africa.

South African Trees

I'm sure there ll be more to come but for today, here is a simple tree.

Only days away from arriving home from our trip to South Africa, I find myself with paintings drifting thru my brain from all I saw. So you ll have to excuse me as I take time to sort them all out and get a few on paper/canvas. In the meantime, here's a little h2o-aided (watercolor) sketch done while driving in the backseat of a bus going down a bumpy dirt road on our way from Hodge Podge Lodge to a nearby park to safari. It seems like where I return to in understanding somewhere new,... trees.
