Oil on board, 50×50cm
Britt, a fellow South African artist is known for her flower paintings. She painted the flowers and I did the rest.
On some level, this work is inspired by Odilon Redon, a favourtie artist.

Some years ago I survived a serious attack on my life. During the year of recovery, I did two drawings and found the activity both calming and exciting.
I am studying under Leon Fourie.
I have simplified my life completely and now paint full time.

Art for me, is an intensely personal expression of how I appreciate and perceive life and people.

    How very beautiful, that’s both the painting and it’s subject. I like the idea of a shared work with each handling their specialty.

  • We’ve had my discussions about whether one ‘should or should not’. But many other areas of art are collaborations, so we felt… Why the heck not! Thanks so much!

    Marvelous work, Jolante. I can see the Odilon Redon influence and creamy style. A brilliant collaboration.

  • Thank you very, very much Seth!
