Crepe Suzette's (the keto-crepe recipe) Started a large canvas for an abstract interpretation of the sea. An under painting in acrylic on the raw canvas that begins to define the movement of the piece. Another few paintings in the Nyathi Series. With another 30 paintings required for the compilation I'm working towards. Having fun with different subjects; Leopard Tortoise, Warthogs, Elephants and Guinea Fowl. Looking right

ArcherOil on canvas 20cmx30cmCommissioned work, alongside the ‘Fly Fisherman’. Fragmented strokes to create a sense of volume, while minimizing detail and focusing on the poise and strength of the archer. Core muscles pounded to mush on the Buffs trail ride. While not technical, still demanding through soft sand and the ride along the railway line section. Spectacular it is, Early sunshine on the breaking

‘White-on-White’, or perhaps I should be calling it the ‘Absence of Colour’?. The addition of acrylic Matt medium to the white paint, creating the contrast between the Agnes Martin inspired bands. My eyes feeling like I’m in a snow-storm, white-out! Graphite lines, a guide. Infuriating in the smudges of grey in the increasingly annal fixation with line and purity. The flex in the canvas,

Sundowner open evening at the studio, as the holiday season gets underway. Terry organized a large bowl of olives and hunk of cheese, their own focal point in the studio and excellent with our sponsored Steenberg Chardonnay. During the evening, I did a small painting of bougainvillea flowers that will be auctioned for charity. Pestle and mortar for grinding pepper corns for the Vietnamese

'Cards', and the companion painting, 'Another hand' Acrylic on linen 40cmx50cm  Hanoi, Vietnam.  From Terry's photo, ladies playing cards next to Westlake.  Frenetic, expressive smearing of paint onto the linen canvas. Craziness after a heart-beat walking through the traffic?  Raw Sienna, and Alizarin Crimson for the face, with a darker mixture of Ultramarine Blue and Cadmium Red. Naples Yellow for the background. Quinacridone Rose and Cobalt Blue for

Terry's delectable 'Salmon en Papillote', which I did on the Weber grill. Zucchini, thyme, cream-cheese and salmon-trout parceled up to seal in the flavours. I heated the weber for ten minutes with the lid on, and then put the parcels onto the braai-sheet. Cooking time was 10minutes for the 2 cm thick fillets. Striving for a limited pallet of colours to take on the

‘Paddle Steamer’ Oil on canvas 60cmx90cm Harbour Town Adventure Water. Complex. Demanding. Knuckles smearing paint. Paddle steamer at sunset across the Estuary from the studio. The paintings at the new Avo Pomme exhibition perfectly capturing the emerging growth from the ashes of the fires. Delicate life, exquisite in its simplicity. Bernice’s canapés, once again, transcending the paintings. That fragment of a view between sweat drops on my glasses,

"As per your wonderful sense/insight of humanity Jan, you have captured emotive images of the human spirit; universally speaking your mind by way of canvas, brush, paint, palette & knife. Many of us could learn to not just "look", but to "see" as well, by taking notice of the message you have implored here within these works. Wish I could have seen it

Oil on canvas 60cmx90cm Painting of a vase of pink flowers and a sugar bowl, I wanted a loose, abstract feel to the painting. The Nerine bowline flowers are made up of spikes of starry delicate petals. A medium sized canvas (60x90cm) gave me room, without the painting needing to be viewed from across the lagoon. I used a background of predominantly Ultramarine blue, broken with
