"Chetiri!"

40" x 30", oil on canvas, 2003, private collection

Continuing along the lines of "Opa! Yeehaw!", my first Canadian-Macedonian culture mashup painting, this one is even more punny since "chetiri" is the Macedonian word for "four" (which is a homonym for the word often shouted by people standing in large parks as they hit a little ball with a club). I don't know anything about golf except that I sometimes would tune in to a match on TV and use the gentle murmurings of the announcers as a sedative.

I shot a bunch of photos of Kristina in her traditional dancing costume that one afternoon, so she appears in the first few paintings in this series.
