Oil on canvas 120cmx40cm

Original oil painting Pushing the Oars


Sampans on the busy waters of the Mekong Delta, searching for the slowest part of the river flow.

The brown waters not what I wanted to dominate the painting, and while acknowledging the strength of the women who ply the eight foot oars of the boats, it was the delicate butterflies of the Delta the feeling I wanted.
