Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – 12″ × 8″ Tea or coffee being served – what is your preference? On my patio, Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa
Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy. Coffee is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From road-side mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat.

When it comes to tea and coffee drinking, I definitely have certain preferences. My main criteria is that tea is drunk out of cups and mugs are for coffee. There’s nothing more heavenly than a properly brewed cup of tea served in fine china. And the pleasure of wrapping your hands around a mug of coffee, especially on a cold, winter’s day, cannot be equalled!
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. “There is a fine line between dreams and reality; it’s up to you to draw it.”
