I think, I will go and buy myself a kilo of Cape apples (they ARE my favourites!) and crunch one gloriously... Little gesture, but this man moved mountains for me and others to eat those delicious apples with a clear conscience, did he not? Will miss him so. Thanks again for your beautiful portraits of him, Paul. Christel.

Sarasota, FL - United States

Viewing this piece, especially today 12/5/13, it makes one appreciate that it is possible for a man to truly leave his mark on the world. Your capture of this wounded soul, makes one give pause to ponder all the suffering, love, anger & forgiveness that any human is capable of. This man exemplified all that many aspire to. You captured that ever present kindness NM always displayed!

Woodbridge, VA - United States

This painting is a fine tribute to world leader and conscience of freedom fighters around the globe. When one is right there is no end to the fight. When South Africa was on the brink of a bloody revolution this giant was able through courage and presence and actions to divert that path and lead S.A. on the road of truth and justice. May his actions continue to be of service to those seeking freedom and justice worldwide.

Taos, Ne - United States

You can see I haven't gotten enough sleep, thinking in half sentences.... I meant by the way you used the lovely striking greens and magentas with some whites coming through, instead of giving him an overall identifiable skin color. You truly paint the feeling body and the rest comes perfectly along.

Paul Lovering replied:

Awwwwwwwwwwwww how FANTASTIC to return home and view these wondrous messages my friend , I am honoured , thrilled and so delighted , you soooooooooooo made my day , Mandela Rocks and so do You , wishing you a wonderful weekend .. Paulxx

Taos, Ne - United States

To continue on a second look- how masterful you are to create depth adn the sense of layers of experience and qualities of this being, while at the same time using that to create the tones of his skin coloring.

Taos, Ne - United States

I've held off commenting on this because it evokes so much feeling so I don't have words. It's a wonderful portrait Paul. If it falls into the right hands , it will become one of the classic Mandela portraits to remember him by for future times. Big v and f and thank you so much for your wonderful comments lately.
