"A PLACE IN AFRICA" and "SERENGETI"

September 2, 2016

 

 

As a young boy and through out the years, I have always been fascinated with the culture and landscape of Africa, due in part by the excitement of seeing Tarzan swing from a vine and overcome the hardships of life in the wild (in the early Johnny Weissmuller movies of the 1930s and 1940s).  

 

 

The older I get, the more I sense an appreciation for the slow pace of life as it existed and the absence of mass populations when I was a boy.   When I see the vast plains of nature and the simple beauty therein, my thoughts prompt me to confess that I wish I were there.  Seemingly, there exists peace and tranquility in the African Serengeti and the Australian Outback, and places of that nature.  Both paintings attempt to express a sense of peace and contentment.
