Artist's Description

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
To dig in one’s own earth, with one’s own spade,
does life hold anything better?
- Beverly Nichols
About 10km from us, on the way to Kromdraai (Tarlton, South Africa), lies the farming area of Oaktree, spreading across valleys and hills. Within kilometers are the world-renowned Sterkfontein Caves, from where the Magalies River originates, which surfaces at the eye on Maloney’s Eye Farm near Magaliesburg, Gauteng South Africa

I pass this gate quite often on my way to Clearwater Mall, some 40km away, always just catching a glimpse of what’s on the other side as I drive by. On this Winter’s day, I stopped and peered over the gate, taking in the lands lying ready for next season’s crop and the track leading to, the house maybe? I did this sketch from memory when I got home. The beautiful trees are what I remembered most, catching the morning winter sun and fairly glowing!
