Cows in the field near Clarens, the jewel of the Eastern Free State, South Africa. View my painting here.
The village of Clarens is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in close proximity to the Golden Gate National Park and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Clarens is an Artists haven with many well known artists either living in or frequenting the village on a regular basis with many art galleries scattered around the village square.
The village has become know as the “Jewel of the Free State” – rich in beauty, with an aura of peace and tranquillity. Clarens is endowed with more trees than most other Free State towns – the fresh, light green willows and colourful blossoms of the many fruit trees are an unforgettable sight in spring time; whilst the magnificent autumn shades of the lombard poplars attract artists, photographers and nature lovers.
