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.

Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.”
— Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, German Philosopher

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!
