A change is as good as a holiday!

Still lifes are not my favourite painting topic, but the sweet smell of ripe oranges inspired me to paint these juicy slices. Juicy and sweet and renowned for its concentration of vitamin C, oranges make the perfect snack and add a special tang to many recipes; it is no wonder that they are one of the most popular fruits in the world. Oranges are generally available from winter through summer with seasonal variations depending on the variety.
A JOY to eat and paint!!
Available. Waterpaint and gouache on waterpaint paper.

My latest art

A joy forever. I really need to paint every now and then. It soothes my soul. It strengthens my heart. It makes me a wonderful person to know. (Smile!) I guess any activity that gives one a feeling of satisfaction, a feeling of worthiness, a feeling of love... is a gift from God. How great it is to know that we can use our talents as long as we live, any day, everyday!

A joy forever!

Art serves many purposes and each one is valid and wonderful. It always brings something extra to the world, no matter what the subject.

A new painting!

After weeks of no painting, I so enjoyed to do this waterpaint today!
April in South Africa means cosmos flowers next to the roadside. 
The Cosmos Route in South Africa comes alive in autumn when the flowers it is named for dance at the roadside. You could simply revel in oceans of cerise, pink and white.

The joy!

Oh what joy is is to get rid of unnecessary things!! I cleaned my "rondawel"  last week and threw out a lot of things: paper, furniture, things that were "stored" here for who knows when....and then I started cleaning, washed the curtains, cleaned the carpet, the windows...everything! Unpacked the bookcase, arranged the paintings in a better way. It looks open and fresh in my so called "Art Gallery" again and you are most welcome to pay a visit!
All these paintings are available. Contact me at if interested. 

 My art books...always inspiring!

Art link people together

Way back in 1969 I was a Grade One teacher in Barberton, Mpumalanga. This beautiful town is situated in the De Kaap Valley and is fringed by the Makhonjwa Mountains. It is 43 kilometres south of Nelspruit and 360 kilometres to the east of Johannesburg. I was only 20 years old then and it was my first job!
I loved the kids in my class and enjoyed my work.
Many years passed. Kids grow up and young teachers grow older. I retired in 2009. Time was my own now. I started painting much more than before. And I discovered the joys of the internet and the joy of sharing one's talents.
Most of my art (and photos) can be seen on RedBubble.

Today is a wonderful day because one of my pupils from my first Grade One class is coming to visit and to fetch all three paintings above which he bought from me! Isn't life just beautiful!
