    Oh I am so glad you chose to paint Madiba. I have been wanting to portrait him, but had nothing to work with. This is a wonderful artwork Paul and no matter how many prayers his age works against him. When he goes we must remember to celebrate his life rather than mourn his death.
    Thank you for giving us this beautiful heartfelt painting. xx

  • Such wonderful words to digest for the day before I leave for work dear Kira , Yes that is a fabulous mantra , Nelson brought the world so much . I thank you for echoing his wisdom , thank you so much Paulxox

    This is a very moving tribute to this iconic man. I remember watching on television the day he was released from jail, and that was a really extraordinary and emotive moment,. Of course my prayers are with him and his family. No matter what age one is, prayers never hurt anyone and I know that he would appreciate them if he knew. YOur work is outstanding dear Paul, and to have the pleasure to know someone who is so humble about the art you create, is a pleasure. This is a very very emotive piece and I see your heart in this. You ought to be really proud of yourself for the gift you have, yet you carry and handle with aplomb. Hugs, Angie xx

  • Awwwwwwwwwww BLESS dear Angie , I too remember that eventful day and the march to FREEDOM , a moment in time ingrained forever !
