  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Landscape ~ South Africa ~
  • When I went to do an exhibition in Tulbagh, I had to install my paintings very early that day and as the morning sun was still pinkish, it tinted the still silent mountains around with a lilac and lavender colour. With the sun's rays just touching the green fields, my artist eye could not escape the tranquility of their reflection in the water!

  • This place could not escape being painted! Every week it has a different colour. So to give a more definite texture to the painting I used river sand to build the rockery and oil paint for the vegetation. This one is my sculpture painting.

  • How intriguing is such a massive door in a corner? A challenge to get the perspective right and the vegetation luxurious! In Bordeaux the stones used are mostly lime stone which can give an old but classy effect.

  • Oil on canvas
  • 40cm x 40cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~
  • Once 'Blue Bubbles' was done, I gladly went to paint more of them but this time the light came from the bulb above me and contributed to this sharp flashiness on them. Does it not remind you of certain things in life coming, flashing and going again?

  • Why do I look for challenges like this? To paint such a lively item you have to exercise your memory! Bubbles don’t stand still in the air waiting for you to paint them! These reflected the blue light of the sky behind me.

  • Artwork ~ Available ~ South Africa ~ Still Life ~
  • As I grew up in a Plant Nursery, these pots on the stoep of a peaceful retreat attracted my brushes, so much so that they nearly painted all on their own! In finishing it, my art mentor revealed that the pointed pot came from her grand-mother a long time ago . .
