This one of my most recent paintings I did of the gallery in Carmel Valley,CA, LyonsHead which represent my work.

The gallery has a beautiful water feature of lions' heads with a creeping rose bush hanging from above. I loved the scene, composition and colours and just had to paint it!

This is a very special painting, inspired by my beloved country's unique Pinotage, a red wine variety which originated in South Africa. 
My mother brought a bottle as a gift from my brother on her last visit to me in Carmel, California.
 Nederburg is a beautiful wine estate in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands and I am so pleased to have captured a part of it in this painting.
