A Day Under The Sun

Ca. 1996
18" x 24"
Tempera

Watching her grinding pepper in the shadow
Cast by the thatched roof under the hot sun
Seeing her holding flowers, smelling pollen
All day long

Fishermen coming back home, rowing canoes
Trees are green covering my head from the sun
Memories flash back like this in the afternoon
When I miss home
