SOLD From a photo by Terry at Sedgefield AfroQuartez Opera Group at Freshline made for a great evening out. The weaving of traditional language into classic opera, the highlight. Terry took the Ottolenghi cauliflower creation to another level with ‘Piment D’espelette’, a red chilli pepper that hails from the Basque region that is not screaming hot, but packed with flavour. The pepper was first brought to

Butterflies. The last of the recycled plastic water-bottle butterflies painted and ready for the commissioned painting. My shaking hands meant that trying to flip the keto-crepe's resulted in piles of mushed mess. Fortunately there was enough mixture to develop a double handed flip, with the crepe sliding up the back of the pan to have enough space for the lifter to operate. Not pretty,

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. A disaster. Storms, and falling temperatures, which inspired the Coq au

'Mongoose' Acrylic on canvas 20cmx20cm The paintings in the Nyathi Series progressing. Each small work, it's own character. I'm now 'chipped', a continuous blood sugar monitor with a new insulin treatment regime to bash me back into the green zone. Added risk of hypoglycemia (particularly on long rides) so an emergency glucose pack, and baby-steps in the introduction of the additional insulin. Quite a job keeping

‘Dancer’, Oil on canvas 60cmx90cm, hanging in the Studio Apartment. My painting 'Before the Mirror', by Manet part of the 'Masters 2', at the George Museum SCAVA end of year exhibition. David Higgs inspired, ribeye braaied on the Kamado Jan in thyme butter, with Jack Daniels & butter, peppercorn cream sauce with mushrooms and Parmesan. In the studio garden, the fuchsia’s are in flower. Keeping a careful

‘Fireflies' Oil on Canvas 76cmx102cm  A grey patch too dark, which I decided to let dry before correcting as I wanted to keep the Spring colours clean. 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)

'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. The hills, distance shadows. The great elephants, at one with the dark. Sound. A scene brutalized in cities, and even in our quiet town of Knysna. Here, where nature rules, sound is everything. Great molars

I am honoured to be part of the wonderful Knysna Oyster Festival, which is a virtual Festival this year. The organisers at Visit Knysna were determined not to let the current Covid-19 crisis put a stop to this annual celebration so have put together an exciting programme of online events from 27 June until 4 July. My session Theatre of Paint Live Stream, is

Carefully, the composition takes shape on the canvas. First lines. Dabs. Smears. Paint starting to give the painting form. Composition too far left! Grateful for the support of clients in the studio. Particularly at this time of turmoil. Studio, quiet. In sharp contrast to the chaos unfolding at supermarkets. And we have free wine! The world has gone crazy. Yet we have our emergency insulin,
