Warm Heart of Africa
Inspire Me Thursday this week asks for art inspired by hearts, to mark Valentines Day. I was stuck for a while, caught between the sugary sweet of romance and the goriness of heart surgery. I quickly remembered my years in Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa and put together this piece. The photo is of the Primary School in Malindi, the village where I lived for two years - education is after all at the heart of Malawi's development. The background is from a chocolate box (a subtle hint of romance there!) and the letters are cut out of a magazine.
