King Butterly Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm A tremendous privilege to have this painting going to a young collector to be included in her private gallery. Fabulous Border Collie, calf screaming, walk up the hills of Eastford Estates. The Nature Reserve recovering after being ravaged in the fires. Amongst the pioneer plants, the foundations of homes raised to the ground, a sobering reminder of the trauma. Ticks,

Meerskat Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm 'Nyathi' Series, the theme for my 30 paintings, in 30 days my challenge. Inspired by the photo's from Addo, the peace and tranquility of being in the bush. To increase the dramatic effect of the small 20cmx20cm canvases, I worked with a limited palette of white and black (dark grey mixture of Ultramarine blue and Burnt Umber).   A minimalistic approach, the

'Fireflies' 24cmx36cm Acrylic on 300 gram paper Blossoms on the tree outside the luxurious room at Nyati. Fireflies and stars. The distance hoot of owls. The melody of the Night Jar. Silence.

Thrilled that my Wearable Art silk scarves were chosen by the Ambassador from Bangladesh as gifts for the Bangladeshi Foreign Minister and his delegation on his visit to South Africa. Cold wind making life a tad unpleasant out on my run. The hills demanding, particularly with my wayward blood sugars. Found a tick munching my leg. Could be interesting. Winter weather perfect for a fondu

Painting of Central Park received a ‘Special Recognition Award’ for Outstanding Art at the 11th Annual International Open Exhibition. Selected from 879 entries. Managed to bruise my bum falling over my feet. Seriously painful. Made for an interesting right-side, left-side dilemma between COVID jab tenderness, bum and my still unhappy shoulder. Terry did a delicious Dog Mom’s, post Covid isolation lunch. Starter: chèvre wrapped

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

A painting I did in Afghanistan, of boys walking down the street outside our house.
