Jan Keteleer Profile picture This vibrant 40x40cm acrylic painting on panel captures the essence of daily life in Africa. Jan Keteleer masterfully depicts local women sailing in a canoe down a glistening river, bathed in the warmth of the afternoon sun. Their brightly colored clothes and headwraps pop against the subdued tones of the landscape.

You can almost feel the gentle rocking of the canoe as they glide across the water’s surface. The women chat lightly as they lower their nets, hoping to catch fish for that evening’s meal. It’s a timeless scene that could be happening today or hundreds of years ago.

Keteleer’s broad, expressive brushstrokes fill the composition with energy and atmosphere. Thick impasto textures capture dappled sunlight dancing across the water. Flowing colorful marks suggest the women’s clothing fluttering in the breeze. The overall effect is at once earthy and ethereal.

This textured original artwork lets you immerse yourself in the essence of Africa. Feel the heartbeat of humanity as local fishermen and women sustain themselves from the land and waters around them. Lose yourself in the sweeping colors and textures. With an inner depth and emotional authenticity, this piece will breathe new life into any room.
