Day 14 30 in 30

tête-à-tête

Oil on Canvas 20cmx20cm
At the bottom of the cottage garden, the deck under the pine trees is our haven from the afternoon heat of summer.
The table and chairs blending into the late afternoon light, secluded, intimate privacy.

Juba Town

Oil on Canvas 30cmx40cm

From a photo by Elke. The road outside the UNOPS compound leading up to the banking sector.

Remnants of Colonial Architecture remain amongst the emergence of glass and plastic. A tad nostalgic and romanticised, its Juba Town scrubbed clean by afternoon storms.

An escape from the harsh reality of guns and cholera.

Flame Tree

Flame Tree Web

Oil on Linen 35cmx50cm

On the easel the layout for a group of 3 young men in Lakes State who reminded me of the restless youth in South Sudan, responsible for the current unrest and deaths, linked to cattle raids, politics, ethnic rivalry and the dry season.

However, on my way to Juba 3, I passed a flame tree the orange blossoms vibrant against the blue sky. Hence, the restless young men will need to wait for another day.
