“I’ve learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it." UNKNOWN
Virtually all over the West Rand (Gauteng, South Africa) the Magaliesberg mountains are visible for miles around.
The Magaliesberg is a 30 000-hectare mountain range that stretches for over 120 kilometres, extending from Pretoria in the north of the Gauteng Province to a point south of Pilanesberg, in the North West Province, and the Bronkhorstspruit towards the east. The highest point of the Magaliesberg is reached at Nooitgedacht (1 852 metres).
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.”
