An African Collage | 'n Afrika Collage en Bosvelddrome by 


Tea, coffee and watercolour in Moleskine 200gsm sketch-book

I know a place in Africa
Where the mountains touch the skies of blue
And the valleys shelter vines of green
Where the trees spread out a cloth of mauve
And the bushveld wears a coat of beige
I know a place in Africa
Where I can hear the voice of thunder gods
And watch their lightening spears thrown to earth
Where I can breathe the scent of rain clouds
And taste the sweet dew of dusty drops

- Wayne Visser

BOSVELDDROME
Waar haak-en-steek in louwarm
Bosveldstilte groei
en volstruise agie-grootoog
verby ons venster loop
daar trek my hart ’n punt

Ek wil weer tarentale hoor
patrys en vink
wat stukke sonlig soggens drink
en by die groot maroelaboom
of langs ’n kanniedood
wil ek die stofpad ruik
ek wil die appelbaar hoor praat
die huilboerboon se skadus
oor my skouers vou
as ek verlang na jou

en saans onder ’n sterrekombers
wil ek lê-luister na jou warm woorde
jou liefhêlied-akkoorde
ek wil dit vasbind aan my lyf
en jubelsange daaroor skryf
- Elizabeth Kendall©

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.

    Lovely, this would make a marvellous rug, naively woven with rough wool. It could even be hung as a tapestry above the beautiful words added by Elizabeth. Just love it. Alma

  • Or a lovely hand-made rug in front of the bed! Great idea Alma! Pleased you like it. xx
