Known for his use of warm, earthy tones and deriving inspiration from mundane and monotonous settings in life, he draws on canvas two rural women carrying fruits. These two women are walking in the midst of nature, perhaps a garden, where they are have just gathered the fruits from. This piece captures both the beauty of culture and nature, as the women, traditionally clad in only sarongs, carry the fruits and pots atop their heads, as they ward through the fields.
