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.

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

  Keel boats out at play in the sunshine. Fish Eagles calling from blue skies. My calves screaming after the never ending climb up the Pezula hill. Fantabulous burger at Easthead suitable compensation. The studio cold in the mornings before the sun visits. A couple of small paintings finished, and others packed and sent off to their new homes. An emotional handing over of a copy of

  Forest run on the contour path with an extra loop thrown in along a piece of single track marked with green spots on trees. Fortunately it was dry underfoot so the exposed roots and pine needles weren't a skating rink. Still tricky. A painting of power and menace. Danger, in those life, and death moments that are Africa. I searched for the sinews, stretched
