Detail of ‘Rhenosterveld’ in progress. 100cmx100cm. Acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas. We are watching, with a touch of alarm, the spike in Covid cases along the Garden Route. Of more concern are the number of people who we know who are infected. So far, while they are ill, they are recovering. My blood sugars. For whatever reason, out of kilter. I

‘Horsing Around’, one of my paintings from Nieu Bethesda Sold and heading to its new home at the Bangladesh Ambassador. Gorgeous summer day, with a touch of rain before the sun turned the estuary into hues of brilliant colour. Fabulous display of summer flowers on the walk around Leisure Island. Heat, the arch enemy of chocolate and keeping the studio cool the new challenge heading

‘MM’ oil on canvas 50cmx60cm, my study of Manet’s painting ‘Before the mirror’, which he painted in 1846, has been included in the SCAVA “Old Masters” exhibition that will open on the 17th November. Mist hanging low over the mountains made for a pretty, if a tad nervy ride. Zero visibility with my glasses coated in mist. Followed Craig’s bright socks hoping that he

Star Jasmin ball with recycled water bottle butterflies Recycled plastic water bottle butterflies in the jasmin-ball pot coming into spring leaf. The next mobile test progressing with a brass backbone. Epoxy to hold the butterflies, a slow Responsible for integrated health HIV/AIDS and TB humanitarian programs In Botswana and Tanzania, I painted the start of the Serengeti migration. My painting, the backdrop for the

At night Recycled plastic water bottle butterfly garden stake, not quite the ‘glow-in-the-dark‘ I was hoping for. However, I have sorted the various paint layers to still give a shimmering finish to the butterflies. The mural will take 100 butterflies per square meter, and the mix of small and large ones may need a bit of juggling. With 7 cut out of each bottle,

Two of the small cheetah paintings handed over to their new homes, and another one finished. My shoulder trashed. Seven passes ride, the section to the bike-park and back. Stunning through the Forest. Or the bits I could see through sweat stained glasses. Core muscles strained over the corrugated trail. Which, the storm and howling winds, danced over. Still, an opportunity to try another of

My commissioned painting ‘Etosha’ received a Special Recognition Award for art of ‘Outstanding Quality’ at the International 10th Anniversary Exhibition. Selected from 2,249 entries and 34 countries. While I’m thrilled to benchmark my work by an international jury, it’s nothing like seeing a child enthralled by a painting in which he is a subject. Adam, and the painting ‘Children in the rain’, which

‘Brothers’ Acrylic on canvas 150cmx150cm Suddenly. It’s done. Gentle. Powerful. Alive. Ear of the cheetah cub needed sorting. Fortunately, it’s a matter of painting it out and starting again. A tad too much detail, for my concept of sketching, while on safari? Turquoise and Pink around the eye, the sparkle. For now, my stressed calf seems to have settled. While, unbelievably chilly for this part of the

The painting of the Cheetah Cubs at that point, where, that touch of magic. If. I’m brave enough. To let it happen. Disaster avoided, as howling winds tossed the shopping bag, containing eggs, as I tried - unsuccessful - to navigate a walk between storm squalls. Wet. Bedraggled. The Forest a jumble of fallen trees. Ancient yellow-wood tree standing tall amongst the carnage. The

Painting demonstration, streamed live, a fantastic opportunity to be part of the Virtual Knysna Oyster Festival, with an estimated audience of 450,000 on various social media platforms. The cheetah cubs painting coming alive during the process of smearing paint about. 100 days of lock-down, 10km run. Probably not the cleverest idea to head out on Knysna Forest Marathon day. Even if I kept to
