Terry's sister Jenny. After a massive stroke. Has passed on. Unfathonable. And so it begins. Canvas stretched on an old frame for the study of Cheetah cubs from a photo by Hirsch (https://www.gravelroadadventures.co.za/). I’m leaving a 45cm border, and will use acrylic paints, so the painting can be stretched properly once it’s done. That will also take care of all small tear in the canvas.

Hot-cross buns, an Easter staple now an option, even with my diabetic dietary constraints. The fluffy Keto version from gnom-gnom might be a mission to make, but they are delicious. Incredibly, I found all the bits even with the lockdown supply chain disruptions. The cross bit, far too sweet, and unnecessary as I wasn't going to share it with anyone. Important if you

‘Hold The Open Heart’Oil on canvas over newsprint 100cmx150cm Straight lines not the easiest with my fingers. I did contemplate using a marker pen, but decided the sharp edges from it would be too big a contrast with the rest of the painting. More than normal shakes in my right arm after the bicycle crash that broke my clavicle make painting a tad difficult.

Carefully, the composition takes shape on the canvas. First lines. Dabs. Smears. Paint starting to give the painting form. Composition too far left! Grateful for the support of clients in the studio. Particularly at this time of turmoil. Studio, quiet. In sharp contrast to the chaos unfolding at supermarkets. And we have free wine! The world has gone crazy. Yet we have our emergency insulin,

’Palette Leftovers’ Acrylic on canvas 70cmx200cm Marathon day. Singing and dancing supporters turning it into a street party, which Prince didn't appreciate. Especially after another night of lightning storms. The cheese-based crust (using a different recipe) for the Beef Wellington didn't hold its shape in the Kamado Jan, resulting in a sort of mush. Fortunately, it still tasted great, but I think that had more to

A few small paintings of Knysna seahorses, with the residue paint being applied to my canvas ’Palette Leftovers’. Airport eerily quiet. No frantic queues through security, chairs available in the departure lounge and an absence of aircraft on the apron. The shrinking of SAA’s domestic routes culling planes, and the slowdown in international travel as the world deals with coronavirus. This before the first

'Etosha Study’, painted as a demonstration at the Greyton Art Walk, on a wet summers day. Thrilled with the ostriches that are full of movement and simplicity. Boulilli de boeuf. A variation on the beef short-rub, served with a spoonful of sauce vert. Despite being packed with flavour and impossibly rich, a tad underwhelming. Strawberry Fields from Graceland, mouth watering. The aubergine tomatoes, mozzarella, fresh
