Our trip to Africa started in Namibia, an absolutely fabulous country on the western coast of Africa. Most of the country is the Namib Desert which we visited briefly. I discussed those days and art in earlier posts in March. Then we flew over the desert in Nambia and the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. Deserts are hostile environments for living but they are beautiful places with color schemes unique to them. I appreciated seeing the vast expanses of sand, dunes, and snaking roads which looked like paths from the air.
Finding Our Way (top) and Going North (bottom) are monotypes I did to express my appreciation of desert landscape, color scheme and solitude.
