The Boatmen

For a fee, one can take a dhow, a Mozambiquan sail boat, out to the islands from the mainland. On this particular day the old Salister engine was giving trouble, over heating or just complaining of an old injury. The two sailors were repairing her as we explored the island. By the afternoon she was thumping away again as we rode the waves back to the mainland. There were indescribable oranges that glowed in the sun off of their bodies and the salt rusted motor. Again the azure blues of the tropical water contrasted the oranges with radical opinion, making aggressive statements in the sun. It was the opposite of breaking down.

A New Dawn
Original Oil on Canvas
40cm x 50cm

The 21st of November this year - I was sitting on a step in South Africa when the news came through that the President of Zimbabwe, 37 years in, had resigned. I’ve painted these rocks, so typical of the hills in the South of Zimbabwe. They are the building blocks of an empire. They have weathered his dictatorship as have the people. It felt like someone was suddenly standing taller than the sky, waving a flag, saying come home. There is an incredible sense of hope. Its explosive. Suddenly it feels like there isn’t going to be enough paint.
