What have I been doing lately?

WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING LATELY ?   You can see ... finally, "The Gathering"  (Women of  Timbuktu)  appeared, the city hides in the background.   I mentioned in a previous post that the city of Timbuktu was at the height of its importance in the Islamic world during the 13th and 14th centuries  as a trading post between West Africa and Europe and as a center of scholarship. Many of the texts used by Islamic diplomats who traveled between Timbuktu and Mecca, teach conflict resolution and tolerance.  We do not know a great deal about this city and its time.  These paintings reflect a past time deleted by the desert sand, but still alive. I have also been working on bull images.  Oh yes, bulls!  I finished the one below

and now I am experimenting..searching......reading about Crete and the Minoan civilization, labyrinths....
