Homage (IF)

I want to pay homage to (probably) the only person I really admire in this world.
Having been born in South Africa (the same year as Apartheid was born), and lived there for 38 years, I have many (not too happy) memories about growing up there.
Nelson Mandela is the one of the finest statesman ever born, an intelligent, warm, compassionate, friendly man. I've seen him in person but not met him.

Happy 90th birthday in July Madiba.

(I painted this about 4 years ago, and wrote this last year.)
