This was painted when I spent a few days in a treehouse in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains. From the deck of the treehouse, these small huts were visible in the sunlight on a plateau above a gorge in the distance.
The word Khaya means 'home' in Zulu and has become slang in South Africa for a very simple hut: the type you might find in the rural areas of the country. The little settlement on the escarpment was in the most glorious setting and it made me think that although its residents might not have much material wealth, they were fortunate to live in such a beautiful place.
