Blue Expanse

Visiting Africa was an expansive experience. All the stereotypes that I had from childhood and adulthood were shattered as I saw the natural beauty, met the soft-spoken warm people, and absorbed a cultuire very different from mine.

Our last stop on our African adventure through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia was Victoria Falls. I am glad we saved it for last since it is so extraordinary that it is in a class by itself. We also stayed at the best hotel I have ever been in The Livingstone Hotel on the shore of the Zambezi River very close to the Falls.

This monotype Blue Expanse expresses the tumultuous falling water, the vastness of the Falls and the uncontainability of the scene- it is over the top. So too, this image cannot be contained within the regular confines of the picture plane.
