I spent three months in West Africa in 1985. The people were amazing and I shot 70 rolls of film, mostly portraits done with a telephoto lens from the balcony of hotels. This painting — my first of people — is a composite of three portraits from three totally different locations. I have these three beautiful people to thank, who, for me, embody the essence and heartbeat of Africa.
