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

‘Cheetah Cubs‘ Acrylic on canvas 70cmx70cm An unusual mix of Naples Green Yellow, Yellow Ocher, And Raw Sienna for the fur. With a touch of Magenta for the ‘dirty’ spots. A continuous process of rubbing out detail, except for the one eye, giving the composition focus. Now for the larger canvas! Strange to have the Studio open again. The revamped website operational. Responsive. Clean. Functional. With

’Field of Dreams’ A small 20cmx20cm painting from a photo that felt as though it should be a painting. While it's the yellow wildflowers that are the essence of the composition, I over emphasised the spectacles a tad to enhance a focal point for the painting. The daughter of one of my collectors in Ireland was recently doing a school exercise, where one of

Hot-cross buns, an Easter staple now an option, even with my diabetic dietary constraints. The fluffy Keto version from gnom-gnom might be a mission to make, but they are delicious. Incredibly, I found all the bits even with the lockdown supply chain disruptions. The cross bit, far too sweet, and unnecessary as I wasn't going to share it with anyone. Important if you

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,

A few small paintings of Knysna seahorses, with the residue paint being applied to my canvas ’Palette Leftovers’. Airport eerily quiet. No frantic queues through security, chairs available in the departure lounge and an absence of aircraft on the apron. The shrinking of SAA’s domestic routes culling planes, and the slowdown in international travel as the world deals with coronavirus. This before the first
