Cheetah painting taking shape. Working hard to keep the ‘sketch’ feel to the painting as my concept for the work is an artist working while out on safari. This of course, a tad different in the 1,5mx1,5m canvas!

A few niggles to sort from the first Virtual Oyster Festival live-streaming painting demonstration from the studio. Hopefully sorted for the next session. Still, a most enjoyable experience. Might have to rethink the painting classes thing?

Links for the session on the 4th:



Forest half-marathon day. Virtual, Oyster Festival run. Great fun, made superb by Terry and Coreta meeting us with ice-cold water and anti-chafing cream.

Note to self

Do not mix up anti-chafing cream with toothpaste!

Calf muscle didn’t enjoy the last bit. Although, I’m not sure why it’s my shoulder that is screaming.

Real beef stew. Five different cuts of beef. Not forgetting the secret ingredient to any beef stew. Bacon! A gallon of brandy. Slow cooked for a decade in a pot large enough to cook missionaries. Scrumptious.

Gale force winds. Wave noise loud enough to have Prince in pieces.
He has been with us for three years now. Amazing. They had a party for him at his doggy-daycare.

In his time Jan has been an electronics, nuclear and power system engineer, a strategist, a humanitarian and an artist. A career path linked by creativity and innovative thinking. Initially trained at the Johannesburg College of Art, Jan has won numerous international awards and has exhibited nationally and internationally. He can be found in his studio ‘Jandreart’ located at Thesen Harbour Town, Knysna.


  • Jan, your cheetah head is bee-ooo-ti-ful. Loved the humour in your livestream; gets across a quirky-offbeat-artist feel. 🙂 You know I’m not a dog-lover, but that face will melt any heart . . .
