Surprising my Ancestors

“Surprising my Ancestors” is a childish painting, as I paint an Indian village from long ago, my canvas comes to life. My paintbrush jumps from my hand as the women scream in terror. The warriors arrive and start to shoot their arrows at me, I`m shocked and turn a pinkish blue, your frightened of me, I`m frightened of you. My eye pops out, It`s so surprised. I wonder and wonder how it came to life. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
