  • When I was a kid we had this project to paint four states of water on small cardboard, only to rediscover them some forty-five years later. I reproduced them together in oil on one canvas. A tranquil subject for a bathroom.

  • Oil on canvas
  • 35cm x 46cm
  • Artwork ~ Nature ~ Sold ~ South Africa ~
  • On a miserable day, feeling too lonely, I went to the furthest point of Hermanus. A few minutes passed and a cloud of seagulls arrived. Some, seeing no movement, went and perched on poles and had quite a discussion up there as my painting took shape.

  • In a French harbour, among many big boats was this little fishing boat with a group of birds relaxing on it. This is my interpretation of the moment: us being like these birds, on a red line, thinking about our future

Gecko Under Sun Ray

  • Oil on canvas
  • 50cm x 50cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Nature ~ South Africa ~
  • In the Karoo desert were I lived for a few years, it was fascinating to see large numbers of these little reptiles at night turning on the wall under the outside light. Their skin is literally transparent so it gave me the inspiration to paint it in a more natural environment, first with charcoal then with oil, to get this translucent effect of its little body.
