The Painter

600 X 900 Oil on Canvas.Busy trying a new tecnique & this was the result.Needs refining.This man I meet daily at one of the robots on my way home where he stands with a tin in his hand hoping for some small change.When I approached him and asked whether I can paint him he was really excited as he himself painted as a hobby when he was still in a work many years ago.I came to realize that poverty can so easily steal ones dreams

About Lenerd Louw

I am residing in Krugersdorp, South Africa.Working as an Engineer on a deep level gold mine.I started painting late 2009. Am still searching where my preference lay.Have completed 37 paintings thus far. At present I enjoy attempting to paint people I have met into a setting where I feel someone might be able to spend an extra minute to ponder and see the message.
