Acrylic Painting: Surreal and Still

ACEO Shakawe by Nkolika Anyabolu 96.JPG

This is from one of the several pictures I took while on a trip to Shakawe, a town near the border between Botswana and Namibia.

There were children fishing in the small pond but I left them out in this painting. Will put them in the bigger one I intend to do someday.

What caught my attention were the reflections the vegetation at the side of the pool made in the still water. I don't know why I am always fascinated by reflections seen in water.

They almost always look very surreal and still. Qualities I long to imbibe.
