‘Rain Day’, 60cmx50cm.

Khartoum, Sudan. Children reveling in the uniqueness of a rain shower. I wanted to capture the happiness of celebrating the small stuff. Particularly at this time of disquiet and upheaval.

The acrylic for the dark background, frustrating. Dull and lifeless. My worst!

Shoulder trashed slicing chocolate for a Tarte au Chocolat, something I haven’t done since I smashed my collar-bone. The texture, a tad disappointing as it didn’t have the mirror finish I was expecting. Still tasty, after a scrumptious braai in the sunshine.

In the weather window, before the storm. A couple of hours riding through the magnificent indigenous Gouna and Diepwalle Forest along Kom-se-Pad. Even more spectacular without traffic, or logging.

Fire, wine and fabulous food. With that touch of craziness, dealing with a Border Collie suffering from a stomach parasite.

A demo-video from my MOMA Abstract-Expressionists course for the Virtual Oyster Festival at the end of June. Technical logistics for live-streaming art demonstrations being untangled.
