A Still Life in Oils “A French Celebration”.

Central Berg Cows€340.00
On a business road trip to the Central Drakensberg with two Hospitality colleagues, we spotted these gorgeous cows at the side of the road against the beautiful Drakensberg backdrop.
Our driver kindly stopped to let me take photos and the result is this gorgeous contemporary cow painting.
Such a lovely day presenting to the Drakensberg Experience Hospitality Industry group at the site launch site of Drakensberg Hot Air Ballooning. Definitely a bucket list item.
Delighted with how beautiful the loose brushstrokes have captured the relaxed nature of these roadside cows!
Flame Lily Oil Painting€140.00
500 x 500 x 50 “Flame Lily:
The National flower of Zimbabwe, this powerhouse of colour was begging to be painted! Love the strong complimentary colours in this painting and the hints of blue in the background. She is looking for a special home.

Lesotho Rondawel Girl | Basotho Portrait€430.00
We met this young lady while taking our Westville B&B American visitors up Sani Pass to a cultural village in Lesotho. Our guide was giving a talk about the Basotho people, and she was sitting quietly listening when she looked up and I snapped her picture. I just had to paint her.
Llandudno Bay Painting€395.00
The beach is a picnic and sun downer haven for couples and families. The vantage point from the giant boulders makes for a very picturesque view. Our family was in Cape Town on holiday celebrating my son Aidan’s 18th birthday.
Madeleine’s Proteas in a Vase€75.00
I took my Mom out for tea at the lovely Madeleine’s Bakery at the Mushroom Farm in Hillcrest outside Durban. There were the most beautiful vases of flowers showcasing proteas on each of the tables. My Mom is frail and with COVID, I could not take her into the bakery so we had a socially distanced tea in the car park. I took photos of the flowers to show her, and decided to paint one of them, in memory of our visit there.
I love the loose style and vibrant background.
Pink Proteas on Turquoise€200.00
Point Yacht Club Dragon Boats€675.00
This is the view from The Anchorage Restaurant at the Point Yacht Club at the Durban Harbour. Gorgeous colourful Chinese Dragon Boats, green Palm Trees, calm sees, and so many pretty yachts.
Portrait of Graceful Greta€95.00
The lovely Greta was my live sitter on an oil portrait workshop I attended with Durban Art Workshops run by Shirley Howells. We sat for 20 minute slots and it was an exercise in painting “fast and loose”. I love the quirky sketch lines and the way she sits on the white canvas.
Portrait of Quirky Ron€95.00
A fun and quirky Portrait of Ron, who was our stoic sitter on a Portrait Workshop I attended on a Durban Art Workshop with teaching artist Shirley Howells who is regarded as one of the Matriarchs of the Durban Art Scene. It was a light-hearted fun painting session, where I forced myself to paint quickly and loosely.
Portrait: “Fragile Strength”€95.00
Fragile Strength is an homage to my 16 year old daughter. She has so much tenacity, perseverance, determination and holds high values on the one hand, and on the other is fragile and needs to be handled with care.
A portrait in oil on stretched canvas as part of my Hospitality Servers series. This is Lincoln who works as a waiter on the Durban promenade next to Ushaka and the Moyo Pier. His kind face and dreadlocks caught my eye, and he kindly agreed to pose for me and let me pain his image.
