About "African Battlefields"
I work as a freelance safari guide and in my work I am constantly confronted with the daily battles on African soil. As the theme of the big five is a bit over commercialized, I decided that when I do the big five you will see that it is a painting and not a photograph. My composition of the animals and landscape is thus more expressionistic than realistic. I also inserted the African sunset which I view as my trademark in most of my paintings. Also my love for the Sundanses camel phobia trees almost compelled me to add this little sunset scene in my painting.
Life inspires me. Nature. The complete and vastly different universe within the universe. The complexities of the soul of man and the mirror image of the soul of the ant. My obsession with travelling and birds. The feeling of victory after completion of each work of art, especially the science involved in pottery making. To wake up every day and to give back to the universe through creativity is a direct blessing from God.
