Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – 8″ × 12″

The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

A sketch of some Hydrangeas from my garden on my kitchen table arranged in my vintage 1950’s Holland’s pewter pitcher.

I planted my Hydrangeas on the 20th November 2010 (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa), and they had their first show of flowers over Christmas, albeit that they’re a bit small. They’re at the end of their blooming now, and I’ve picked the small heads and hung them to dry in my potting shed. Might come in useful for some arrangement or another…

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.
