    Mystical, rich, African, cultural, contemporary.. in one singularity..
    It’s at best with its strength when viewed from a distance, perhaps (but then again, maybe this is just me 🙂 ) Cheers!

      Wow! a wonderful, synthetic, comment indeed! You really nailed it! Terima kasih! Then, you are right about the distance, it is your perception which is unique per se. Then there are many ways to read a painting, as it will be read differently according to the distance. Cheers!

    Beautiful painting. I love the colors and the feeling this evokes.

    C’est magnifique chère Xea. J’aime beaucoup l’effet de profondeur en bas à gauche. On dirait l’entrée à un autre monde gardé par les 4 personnages (les esprits?). La forme en jaune lumineux est-ce le griot pénétrant dans ce monde?

      Quel beau commentaire Eric! oui en effet, il y a l’intention de la profondeur de l’esprit relié à des personnages.
