Gabon


"Lafille dancing" gouache, 6"x8"
This was my farmer's illegitimate daughter dancing during one the many Bwiti ceremony I took part in. I had several sketches of people dancing in my journals. This is just one painting from the journals.


"Muslim man at Owendo", 5"x8" gouache
I watched this man pray on the sidewalk for half an hour while I sat in a train waiting for the conductor. It was an easy sketch to make since the man barely moved other than to move from bead to bead every few seconds.
