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.

Caprivi Shop

In most villages one finds little shops selling basic essentials such as soap, batteries, candles and salt, not to mention the universal luxuries like potato chips, candy, freshly baked cookies and the all too ubiquitous American brands of soft drinks. (18” x 18” oil on canvas)

“The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.”
