1991

This painting was done after our travels to Harare, Zimbabwe and the Zambezi River. It was extraordinary and I was taken with the trees and plants. The trees looked different. The climate was temperate but they had a look of lying down. Maybe the weight of the animals on them and the dryness of the climate created that look. Picking up on the patterns of mud cloths and other garments, and decorative marks I gave the trees their character.
