Oil on Canvas ~ SOLD

My dearest South African friend, Penny Haig, bought this painting from me before I moved to the USA. It is a snapshot depiction of my kids at play on Campsbay Beach. I am not sure who I miss most, my friend or my kids at this age!!!

The painting has rich impasto brush strokes, emphasizing the transition between the warm and cool colours, which in turn, creates a lively, sunny rendition of a very special moment of kids on the beach.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did painting it!

Christine Williams with the winning painting!
Congratulations to the lucky winner, Christine Williams. She entered my Give Away and really expressed her love for my work in such a special way that I felt she deserved to win it. I wish I could have given away more paintings, as there were so many wonderful comments on my work. Next time!

Lots of love,

Oil on Canvas                        Morning Rooibos Tea                                36x40

This is a self portrait, depicting me enjoying my beloved Rooibos tea, soaking in the last few rays of summer sun. Most of my painting ideas I pen down in the leather bound book in the foreground while contemplating my next dish, sewing project or piece of furniture to be rescued from obscurity.
