Happy birthday son I am so proud of you ❤️

finishing touch .. literally 🙌

This storm is one inspired from africa - maybe that's why I am judging it very harshly - and feel at every turn that I should just start all over again.... I will probably reach that turn again today and may even do that! In case that happens it's good for you to see the paintings that are in 'limbo', rather than the successful ones that make it .. it's not all rainbows in the studio every day 🙌

subtle reminder she want her breakfast NOW lol

Valentine @valentinemagutsa with his daughter Lolita. We are looking at ways to help Valentine with treatment for his rheumatoid arthritis. As Valentine can no longer paint, his goal is to go back to teaching art to students again, but he requires better equipment to help with mobility. I will share our plans with you soon, and I hope you can help in any way, even if buying a print or post card if his 🙌😃. Please see his print site which I’ve set up for him! They ship anywhere in the world - thank you ✌️

Valentine’s @valentinemagutsa show is starting in a few hours (back in Zimbabwe!) - I have already sold 3 of paintings in the past few hours which is FANTASTIC!! I have made a website for Valentine - archiving all of his works including the remaining originals he has left - (11 in total left!)

Also made this print website for reproductions of his work - all can all be bought online and delivered to your door anywhere in the world!

As Valentine is struggling along with so many other Zimbabweans, I am working on a project that will help support his family and also have a knock down effect to help other artists there.
Hope you like his work as much as I do! Wishing Valentine the best of luck today!

In the hopes that some of you might be living in my hometown Harare, Zimbabwe, please go see my talented friend Valentine Magutsa's @valentinemagutsa

Valentine has just a handful of beautiful paintings remaining since struck with his rheumatoid arthritis and left bed ridden. I already own 5 of his paintings' and counting!

I'm happy to say I have also been working on a project to help support him (and his family) which I will be sharing with you all soon.
