African Memories

This is a 24' x 24" Acrylic on canvas painting that incorporates many of my memories from last summer's trip to South Africa. To create this painting I started with my photo of a Cheetah and then took a left turn into my memory. I chose to depict the smoke and embers from the bush fires we saw and some graphics from the African fabrics that I so admire.

This painting is part of the Hot African Nights show at Barton Gallery, 1723 I Street in Sacramento, California. To purchase the painting for $700. please contact the gallery at (916) 443-4025 or http://www.sacartz.com/.
