November special

Woman in a meadow • Regular R12 000 • Special R9 000

From the very beginning, my first loves were horses and women.

I enjoy having them in one painting.

Philosophically the horses represent energy and the woman, spirit.

October  special • R 25 000 • The last sparrow in Venice

Last sparrow in Venice 30 x 30 cm

Sparrows are disappearing. 

They have abandoned some of their favourite haunts.

On every visit to Venice it was my special joy to draw the lbj’s but on my last visit, they were nowhere to be seen.

Venetians call them their ucelli (the little birds), and one of the greatest artists of the early Renaissance was known by the name of Ucello.

It was three weeks before I saw my first sparrow in a closed off, secret garden.

As always, I had my sketchbook with me and did a quick study for painting at a later stage.
