  • Oil on canvas
  • 90cm x 60cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Landscape ~ Morocco ~
  • In one of the narrow streets of Chaouenne, I discovered that you can have all sorts of entrances: tall, small, blue or varnished, rich or less attractive. But what’s fascinating is that not one line is parallel! And some walls are built over ruins and all are covered with this blue cerulean paint, the street as well as the walls.

  • Terracotta pots outside a closed door? Who dares? In a small village one respects his neighbor. And what is under this carpet? In case you wonder . . . a bicycle to let the carpet breathe some fresh air.

  • Oil on canvas
  • 42cm x 58cm
  • 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!

  • 35cm x 50cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Landscape ~ South Africa ~
  • 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.

A Medieval Classic French Door

  • Oil on canvas board
  • 35cm x 28cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ France ~ Landscape ~
  • 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.
