I so loved working on this piece and I took my time with all those therapeutic dots... this piece was inspired by our beautiful Guineafowl that are endemic to Africa. They roam freely on my parents farm and most places actually and have always been very much part of my childhood. I love their perfectly spotted feathers and beautiful colors.
At one stage on this piece, I froze and was overwhelmed to finish but I’m so pleased I pushed through. I love the circle elements that I can see that help take my eye around this piece and I am pleased that I kept their faces neutral with everything else that’s going on. On the whole, this piece really filled my love tank. I’m so grateful for this studio time.
