Garden Route


On a road-trip to Cape Town . A popular resting location, Storm River Bridge, for absorbing the natural scenery.
Shops and restaurants available.

Located in the Garden Route of South Africa, also a place to draw some inspiration for painting.

Port Elizabeth CBD - Buildings




After many years of neglect, good to see old buildings being renovated in Port Elizabeth city centre.

Very few buildings with this architectural style remain in Port Elizabeth.
Wonder what it will be used as?

Maybe a hotel?

Painting 'Enigma1' from Poetry




This painting that was interpreted from a poem.

HEATWAVES

she dances on tiptoe
light-headed
over burnt orange heatwaves
he swims naked
through a cool pool
of electric blue
their movements mingle
in a child's painting
abandoned in the rain

Beginning stage of ' Enigma 2 '


The early stages of painting. Adopting a figurative technique, which i have not created in a while. Trying to interpret in a semi-abstract manner.

The inspiration comes from a poem.

Painting and Poetry Art Exhibition



An interesting exhibition coming up. Artist's have to create paintings inspired by selected poetry. My challenge is to do an abstract interpretation of a poem. Should be interesting.

Reflection


Early morning when the air was still cool. Lavender and unknown flowers in a vase. On the left; quartz crystal ; and on the right a ceramic candlestick I created caught in reflection.
Faint dew still lingering on window.
Another day begins...

Painting serene


Painting that is expressed with gentle brush-strokes. A painting that offers quiteness and feeling of calm. The is an area where passion makes its mark.
So it is not to confront, just a nuance that lingers.

Antique Camera




An antique camera that i have. It still has original photo film inside. Would be interesting to be able to print images from it. Have no idea how old the film is.
Maybe with forensic science?
