African Sunset silhouettes

Maree  Clarkson

Tarlton, South Africa

Artist's Description

Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm 12″ × 8″
.
Once you have lived in or visited Africa, visions of Africa become indelible in a visitor’s memory. Vivid sunsets… warm and welcoming people…. amazing wildlife and, of course, the incredible silhouette of an Acacia tree etched against an African sunset, all combine to make a visit to South Africa one of life’s peak experiences. Seasons are reversed here, so the best time to visit is July through October. On nights when there’s a full moon and high water, you may even witness a rare and thrilling lunar rainbow!
- Extract from Wayne Visser’s poem sum’s Africa up well :
.
My soul is at peace in Africa
For her streams bring lifeblood to my veins
And her winds bring healing to my dreams
For when the tale of this land is told
Her destiny and mine are as one.

Richard’s review : “The delicate weave, and seductive nature of this work only begs for more in my opinion…she is totally revealed in this scene…”
.
Alma’s review : “This wonderful painting depicts them and the amazing setting sun moving together as one into the night. Slowly, inevitably and with infinite grace, the sun leaving shadows and the giraffe only footprints.”
