Ma ka andah

"Old man Reyes", gouache 10"x12"
The paintings of people I've met over the years have taken a back seat because of all the bird paintings. Therefore, I created this new blog mainly to showcase non-wildlife paintings. With wildlife, and certainly with birds, I love to bring out life from a 2D depiction. With portraits, I try (although not always successfully) to bring out human soul and character. "Ma ka andah" means "I am going home" in Fang. With these paintings, I guess I am trying to depict my version of home.
