‘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

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

‘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,

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.

‘Palette Leftovers’ sold and in its new home. Vibrant swirls of colour that entice and fascinate.  Storms tearing through. Unsettled nights. Huge moon. Chaotic winds. The Forest beautiful at first light, and Running with the sunrise, noticeably earlier. The commissioned portrait, ‘Deurmekaar Weskus’, mostly sorted. A few Issues to clean up. A tad darker in spots, and grey-white smears needing touching up, once the paint

Terry’s terrine de campagne, cold-smoked salmon, green salad with pine-nuts, sweated peppers, tartiflette, pork rashers and boerie the tapas-style birthday dinner. The Fairview Carignan and Tannât were perfect pairings. The Palatinus, outstanding! Salmon, grapefruit, avo, radish and creme fresh The ‘black’ in my portrait ‘Wild Thing’ a mix of Lefranc Burnt Umber and Windser and Newton French Ultramarine. Searching for the essence, within the facial

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

Special Recognition Award for ‘Outstanding Art’ at the 10th International ‘Animals’ Art Exhibition, selected from 1,040 entries from 32 countries. Mist through the Forest on Kom-se-Pad ride. Privileged. Spectacular. That tad bit of drama, managing my blood sugars on the long ride and over a 1,000 meters of climbing. Getting better at listening to when my body is fatigued and crashing.
