‘Left over Palette’ Acrylic on Canvas 200cmx70cm From the large ‘Lotus’ Commission. the residue of paint, smeared about the canvas. Privileged to be included in Chef Stuart’s dinner at A1. The midnight, 9 course, wine-pairing dinner (that catered for my diabetic restrictions) incredibly special. There have, only been, 15 finishers. Against the chaos in Ukraine. Russian family finances destroyed. Children's lives obliterated. The 2022, Bracleys Marathons

Kei River Mouth Recycled Plastic Water Bottle Butterflies on canvas 100cmx100cm A tad dehydrated after the ride over the Brenton Hills. Chaffing an issue in the humidity, so definitely need to use anti-chaffing cream to my prep list. ‘Brothers’ a new scarf design completed and on order (hopefully in the Studio at the beginning of March). The hectic increase in shipping and general COVID global inflation

Oil paint on the plastic water bottle butterflies not a success. The oil paint too heavy for the salt-bush twigs I’m using to create the abstract mark-making. Taking a bunch more care to determine which part of the plastic water bottle I need to move the reflected light around the painting. Christmas eve dinner, on a perfect summer evening. Terry found the Worlds best Christmas crackers from

Nyathi Series 2 Acrylic on canvas 2,1mx1m The first 32 paintings for the Nyathi Series 2 art work are done, from our trip to Addo Elephant Park. I will do another 8 or so for greater impact. Goukamma to Buffs trial run with Prince. Short. Fierce. Humidity in the Forest section punishing. As were the hills up the sand dunes. Only fell once, with a strip

'Kaleidoscope' Acrylic and Recycled Water Bottle Butterflies on Canvas (Photo credits: Clare Bosman)   The collective noun for butterflies; kaleidoscope, which seemed appropriate for the light reflections off the various facets of the plastic water bottle butterflies. An abstract painting study,  where I sculptures the canvas with white paint to reinforce the dynamic flow of the colours on the butterflies. Terry, my guiding hand home after an A1 dinner

Oil on canvas, Line Art, painting with my finger painting technique challenging. My latest interpretation using my fingers to form ridges of white paint, creating lines on a white background. Light, the only differentiating factor. Stunning days after the storms, made for picnic’s, braai’s, beach walks, trail runs, forest rides and Border Collie mayhem. Fires at night to push back the winter chill monsters

‘Lotus’ Acrylic and recycled water bottle butterflies on canvas 50cmx60cm. A study for a larger work with a softer approach to the saltbush mark-making on the recycled plastic water bottle butterflies. A more restful composition that uses the translucence of the plastic to better effect. Joan Mitchell’s influence in the colourful, compositional rhythms and vivid emotion that takes inspiration from the lotus flowers of

With more of the recycled plastic water bottle butterflies finished on my ‘Rhenosterveld’ artwork, I’m getting lost in the composition and have had to slow down to let a section dry before tackling the next bit. Taking inspiration from Joan Mitchell, an American Abstract Expressionist artist whose aggressive brushstrokes and vivid colour were used to convey emotion. Much of her career was spent

‘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

’Memory of France’ Acrylic on canvas 90cmx60cm The painting of France a tad more laboured than it would have been if we had been traveling in France, as I would be rushing to do as many paintings as possible in the limited time. However, I'm pleased that it doesn't feel overworked. The loose canvas giving me a hard time with lines that didn't behave
