Expressionist Stories!

On Saturday we went to our local Farmer's Market at Shongweni. It is always a pleasure to go and join the growing crowds of early morning risers. This time we met the artist and expressionist story teller Nicky Chovuchovu. We were so struck with his work and enjoyed the lively motion in his pieces. I bought 2 greeting cards. Each card is personally signed on the back by Nicky himself. Hopefully we'll go back and pick up one his oil paintings some day! See more about him and his work over here!

Oh, those are so beautiful! So real and tangible.I can almost hear the voices.
When I buy cards like that, I keep them or frame them, and can't quite part with them (-:

These are great! The top one especially appeals to me - you can virtually feel that whirling and hear the giggles. My nephews loved being twirled like this! Probably still do but are too big for their aunt to lift them off the ground now :)
