Portraits and People

Being fascinated with the diversity of faces, lifestyles and cultures of our human family, I began a series of larger paintings stemming from my observations of people during the 28 years I lived in Africa. This series is gradually expanding to include people of different backgrounds in whatever country I find them and in whatever activity they may be engaged as they carry out their daily lives. Click on an image to see the complete painting and to read a short anecdote.  Should you be interested in purchasing an available painting, please contact me.

Picture 13 of 19

I saw this couple at the coast and sketched in my mind from a distance. They made me wonder if I would one day be sitting there, too, letting the warm sun, gentle breeze and the comforting sound of water soothe my tired limbs. (11" x 14" oil on canvas)
