A seascape painting a created. I captured this view from the look-out at Knysna Heads. Standing on the Eastern Head looking across to the rugged Western Head with the Indian ocean swirling towards the left. Many ships attempted passage through The Knysna Heads in the past. But these waters are untamed and challenging. In the cave to the left is an abandoned mine. A walking trail also passes nearby into the nature reserve. Knysna cultivates delicious oysters in the lagoon nearby. Sights , sounds and scents all invigorate your senses. So have an unforgettable visit and enjoy.

As in ancient philosophies that teach us to still the mind , I make an attempt at this through painting.
The process of giving and taking away . Textures and placement of paint all engage and draw the eyes. Areas of colour are subtle , reaffirming the emotion to reflect and ponder.
Bringing a piece of sanctuary to your space.

2nd Twitter Art Exhibit :
I decided to contribute a painting ' All the world's a stage ' for a charity-cause in Moss, Norway.
The aim of the exhibit is that twitter-artists from around the world send a postcard size painting to raise funds for a charity.
So I'm excited to participate.
