Watercolour and Garden Shots
Several years ago, DD went to Zimbabwe for a university class credit. She brought home many treasures, some as gifts from the family with whom she was staying.
We had asked her to purchase some art for us from local artists, and she brought home several pieces which now hang in our home. One day I decided to paint some of the art and artifacts as a gift for her. I played with the scale of the items, and created
" Zimbabwe Memories."
This watercolour is 12" x 16". The painting depicts a likeness of 2 figures from the art purchased, a malachite egg, a carved wooden bust, a carved wooden sugar bowl with lid.
