Good-day. That’s a lighthouse and well, one of my favourite paintings. Not sure why. I painted it when I returned from Baya having spent 10 wonderful days in a place called El Rincon on the peninsula. It’s virtually a desert area; definitely the real-outback of ‘Merico’ but, surrounding it, the warm Gulf-of-Mexico water. This piece is a scene in my mind’s eye. Near, Inn at Rincon where friends and I were staying. Needless to say artistically my image is more fantasized than the reality. But yes, I did see that horse. My memory of the beauty of this part of the world — simply — incomparable.

This painting sits at the office of the ‘Global Alliance Against Female Genital Mutilation’ (known as: GA-FGM) located at UN Geneva headquarters campus in Geneva Switzerland [Art by Diane Walsh ©mediageode 2010-2015]. The official opening was Sept 2011. Here is the working group. I travelled to Geneva to honour the opening.

In pictures – The courageous co-founders of GA-FGM, Holger Postulart (Germany, France, Switzerland) and Elisabeth Wilson (Haiti, DR of Congo, Canada, France, Switzerland) who beat all odds and have now grown a world-class recognized NGO. Next, their first wonderful official intern, Guillaume Roth, now a graduate of Political Studies (France) with a thesis on FGM featuring a summary of his internship with GA-FGM (Fr.). The one who broke the ice!
