‘Reflections’ Acrylic and Recycled Water Bottle Butterflies on Wooden Block My submission to the Art Society '30 Shades of Green' Exhibition. The small butterflies a tad trying to cut out and paint. A fair bit of mess. Fabulous evening at Cloud 9 for Tim’s birthday celebration. With the weather turning chilly, as winter started to flex its muscles, grateful for the thoughtfully designed terraces and dining

‘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

Wild Side beach restaurant. Simply splendid, and the setting. Perfection. Spoilt, we are. Struggling to get the large canvas (200x150cm) canvas I need for the butterfly commission. Stock, a general problem and trimming the weight of the final painting an additional complication. Palette for Recycled Plastic Water Bottle Butterflies Dinner menu, for the predicted weather.

‘Fireflies’ SOLD Oil on canvas 76cmx104cm heading to its new home. Type 1 Diabetic Half Iron Man Experiment. The decision. Holiday lunch craziness? 70.3 Mossel Bay Half Iron Man, throwing out a few curved balls. How to keep my insulin cool over the cycle/run leg when my blood sugars could be a tad crazy?

It also gives the ridges of paint created for the branches a chance to hold their shape before I trash them again. Permanent Carmine (Classico), Van Dyk (No. 40) Rose Madder Carmine Permanent Magenta (Daler Rowney) and Van Dyk (No. 48)

The. ‘Flex’ on the large canvas giving me a headache trying to keep the rows and columns straight, as the recycled plastic water bottle butterfly artwork ‘Lotus’ heads towards the midpoint. Humbling that a collector was so engaged with my art. ‘I am so proud to be an owner of one of your art pieces.’ Rain. Marie Claude’s anchovy dressing for the Caesar salad. Cream, that

‘White-on-White’ Acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas received a Special Merit Award for ‘Art of Outstanding Quality’ at the 12th Annual International Abstracts Exhibition, chosen from 1,206 entries from 34 different countries. Underpainting for the ‘Lotus’ art piece using a light gray mixture of Cobalt Blue and Burnt Sienna. The 2mx1,5m canvas fun to work with. Thunder driving Prince demented. The Commissioned work

Started a small study (35cmx50cm) for the dancer, on a previously used Italian linen canvas, which adds an extra dynamic. Painted in black (actually a dark grey mixture of Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber). The small size a tad challenging. Hoping to achieve a dramatic painting that bursts from the canvas. Not often that I have multiple paintings going on at the same time.

Finished my new recycled plastic water bottle butterflies art piece ‘Renosterveld’ 100cmx100cm Finalist in the International ‘Colourful Abstractions’ Exhibition from 601 entries. I hadn’t finished the piece by the submission date, so had to submit only a portion of the completed work.
