traveller


I used to be a traveller.
I've trecked to the highest peaks.
Riden elephants and seen a wild tiger
seen whales and sharks and turtles
thrown myself off a waterfall
underground.
Ive seen buffalo glow in the full moonlight
I ve eaten fresh shucked oysters under a tree
got naked in the rolling surf
and fallen asleep on the back of a motorbike.
now i stay home
and travel in my mind

Wonderful! Have you thought of doing a book? I really love your use of color and composition! THis one in particular, it feels very fast and fun, full of joy and excitement for what lies ahead.
I hope this isn't rude but how much do you sell these for? I am interested. Your paintings make me happy.

What I like? I like everything! All colors, I like your people and your animals, they all have a knowing expression, like they are in on a little secret or something, I love that!!!!
