Impressionist painting of young girl in the waves
From a photo by Terry at Sedgefield

AfroQuartez Opera Group at Freshline made for a great evening out. The weaving of traditional language into classic opera, the highlight.

Terry took the Ottolenghi cauliflower creation to another level with ‘Piment D’espelette’, a red chilli pepper that hails from the Basque region that is not screaming hot, but packed with flavour. The pepper was first brought to Europe from Central, and South America in the 16th Century and used for medicinal purposes.

Courgette and walnut (pomogranate pearls because they are in season) salad. Served with Terrine de compagne from Marlene van der Westhiuzen.

Monet, filled his canvases with colour, while Joan Mitchel allowed the colour to breath within white space.

For the next ‘Monet’ inspired recycled plastic water bottle butterfly piece (with reference to a painting I did in Rome) the ‘white-calm’ from one part of the water bottles, while the vibrant water-reflecting colour from a different part? A bother.

Stunning late summer afternoon for the opening of the Lindo Zwane exhibition at Entabeni. Within the black of the paintings, carefully crafted details are discernible. The angst, a tad disturbing.
