Abstract Black and white painting of Japanese Anemones

Japanese Anemones

Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm

Home. A tad stressful, with pilot having to ‘thump’ the plane down in poor visibility and rain.

The runway in Jozie, flanked by drifts of pink and white cosmos flowers. A sure sign that autumn is approaching. Painted a million times, I’m always a tad apprehensive about finding something new to say. However, the architectural stem shape and archetypal flower structure are timeless. In a similar way, the Japanese Anemones flowering in Mum’s garden.

Root cuttings in the hope of getting them to grow in the small garden behind the studio. The flowers, inspiration for a small painting.

The large artwork ‘Lotus’ 150cmx200cm, acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas taking shape.

Terry, on her virtual St Francis way, leaving from Florence, has reached the Eternal City. Rome. 413km.

One of the best things you can eat is Cacio e pepe: “cacio” is the local word for Pecorino Romano, a salty, aged sheep’s milk cheese, while “pepe” means black pepper.

The two ingredients are combined with cooked pasta (a keto version using cauli noodles) and a bit of its cooking water, then stirred vigorously to create a smooth sauce. Carbonara a Roma.

Cesar salad, with an anchovy dressing, followed by Saltimbocca a Romano (pork rather than veal) with keto gnocchi and spinach.

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.


  • The Caesar’s Salad looks scrumptious, even for a vegetarian (okay, porkatarian . . .). Like the black and white anenomes. x
