About "Fields of Mica, Richtersveld"

I love the Richtersveld in Namibia. The soil has a very shiny silver look. The lighting on that day made the micah in the soil glint silvery and the mountains looked black against the dawn sky. We travelled to Namibia in 2010 and it was a great experience. The roads are open and the desert landscape is calming to the soul. I was inspired to capture that peacefulness in a painting.
