Mike's paintings are based on many golden hours spent with the Kwa (Kalahari Bushmen) in Botswana which he visited regularly over period of 12 years. The later years also included some magic encounters with the Ju//wa, a !Kung Bushman tribe in Namibia. Golden days indeed, but touched with a little sadness as these Khoisan people were catapulted into the modern world at a pace too too fast for cultural adjustment. The inevitable transitions were too impatient to allow for social development without destroying structures that have sustained man for 10 000 years or more.
