‘Palette Leftovers’ sold and in its new home. Vibrant swirls of colour that entice and fascinate. 

Storms tearing through. Unsettled nights. Huge moon. Chaotic winds. The Forest beautiful at first light, and Running with the sunrise, noticeably earlier.

The commissioned portrait, ‘Deurmekaar Weskus’, mostly sorted. A few Issues to clean up. A tad darker in spots, and grey-white smears needing touching up, once the paint dries.

“You would hardly believe how difficult it is to place a figure alone on a canvas and to concentrate the interest on this single and unique figure and still keep it living and real.” – Edouard Manet

The first of the recycle plastic water bottle butterflies for the ‘Butterfly Forest‘ at the studio. A few different fixing methods to see how they stand up to the wind. Only another 100 or so needed!

Cabbage with Roquefort cheese, cream and pistachio on the Kamdo Jan. A recipe based on Jan Hendrick Van Der Westhuizen ‘French Affair’. Rich. Indulgent. Delicious. Steak and spare-ribs, probably not needed. However, a magnificent day screamed out for a braai.

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.
