Lone Acacia Tree

 Out of my Gallery/Studio November 2011
“If you look closely at a tree you'll notice it's knots and dead branches, just like our bodies. What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully.” Matthew Fox

Early rains Grotto Beach

This large painting, completed in my studio/gallery during the Whale Festival in October 2011, captures a distant storm over Walker Bay towards Gansbaai. The dramatic clouds and sheets of rain dominate the composition while light and colour play across the skyscape. The wet beach reflects the dramatic sky above.

Thundering out of the Dust

It’s always a challenge to do a painting of an elephant – but I never shy away from a challenge. “Through the dust” a large canvas capturing a true African savanna moment. A gentle giant moves through the dusty landscape with acacia trees emerging through the storm on the horizon.

A commission for good patrons of mine Johan and Naomi Wessels.

Nguni on the trot

In this painting I have placed the Nguni Cow moving out of the picture plane to the left creating tension and emphasizing movement. Free brush stokes activate the background without distracting from the focus of the painting.
