W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
In a friend’s garden (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)

“In pale moonlight / the wisteria’s scent / comes from far away.”
— Buson

A friend’s Wisteria is in full bloom and the scent is absolutely intoxicating! Just about the complete one side of her house is covered (there’s a pergola next to the wall) and it’s absolutely beautiful. The only problem is, the pergola is leaning dangerously close to a window from the weight of the plant and she says unfortunately she says she’s going to have to take it down. That would be a real pity, but hopefully she can just trim it back a lot and retain some of the original plant. It his taken years to get to that size and planting a new one would take forever to produce this wonderful show.

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
