  -  Messing About with Paint   -  Huts

Oil on Canvas 40cmx30cm

A painting of huts on the easel that reminds me of Monet’s haystacks.

It started out as huts against the skyline. Empty of life. The earth scorched by the sun. Echoing the hopeless consequence of war.

Watching the sunrise, full of promise, drums and singing from where the IDP’s are corralled, the painting took on a different life.
