W&N Watercolour in Moleskine 200gsm watercolour sketch-book
Flowers from my garden in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa.

Appreciate your friends
and family
and hold them near.
Compliment yourself
on the day’s achievements
no matter how big or few they are.
Appreciate the stamina of your body.
And who you are.
Turn toward
your perfect life.
It is the best feeling.
Go on a rampage of appreciation.
Relax and breathe into appreciation
of what you shared.
No relationship is ever done.
It’s all eternal.

- Maree Clarkson

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.

    Long ago I took watercolour classes and if it taught me one thing it was appreciation for the amazing medium when done by a practiced artist like yourself. This is stunning.

  • Ah, thank you for your lovely comment Awefaul! Much appreciated!
