‘Lotus’ 150cmx200cm Acrylic and recycled plastic water bottle butterflies on canvas 150cmx200cm Drawing inspiration from the Abstract Impressionist painter, Joan Mitchell and the painting I did of Lotus flowers in Hanoi, Vietnam. Joan Mitchell’s work, Abstract Expressionist and Action painters. Rooted in her emotional response to nature through memories, orchestrating her paintings in energy, mood and emotion. Collisions of colour that are exuberant against the natural,

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.

Last of the 800 recycled plastic water bottle butterflies cut out and painted for the large ‘Lotus’ painting.

Charcuterie, Melon caprese salad, Keto Gnocchi in sage butterGamberi alla Busara. Also tried the pork

Herb pot, recycled plastic water bottle butterfly (Photo credit Clare Bosman) Forest walk, with mist and a touch of rain to start, before the sun turned the heat up. For a Border Collie, the puddles irresistible! As are the single tracks. Pathways, of adventure, made to tear down. Slightly larger butterflies from various different plastic water bottles to see how the colours, or white change.

‘Lotus’ Acrylic and recycled water bottle butterflies on canvas 50cmx60cm. A study for a larger work with a softer approach to the saltbush mark-making on the recycled plastic water bottle butterflies. A more restful composition that uses the translucence of the plastic to better effect. Joan Mitchell’s influence in the colourful, compositional rhythms and vivid emotion that takes inspiration from the lotus flowers of

With more of the recycled plastic water bottle butterflies finished on my ‘Rhenosterveld’ artwork, I’m getting lost in the composition and have had to slow down to let a section dry before tackling the next bit. Taking inspiration from Joan Mitchell, an American Abstract Expressionist artist whose aggressive brushstrokes and vivid colour were used to convey emotion. Much of her career was spent

Chef Hirsch menu of scrumptiousness. Chèvre fried with bread crumbs on tomato, tarragon herb salad and sherry vinaigrette. Tuna tonnato with capers, olive oil and other bits with seared tuna and crushed coriander seeds. Lamb marinated in Z’atar, Sumac & olive oil, with roasted garlic aioli. Huge amounts of wine that made navigating home a tad messy. East Head walk with Prince, who wasn’t
