Engraved in my memory

Maree  Clarkson

Tarlton, South Africa

Artist's Description

W&N watercolour on smooth cardboard
.
On our previous property, also an 8.5ha smallholding in Tarlton (South Africa), we had a low rock wall surrounding the 1-acre garden, which gave us a measure of security but also allowed the flocks of guinea fowl roaming the area to visit for a snack. I used to put out seeds for them and would watch their antics and paint them whenever they came for a visit. They got quite used to me and didn’t pay much attention because, after all, they had their sentinels posted on the wall, keeping an eye open for danger!
.
That smallholding gave me such pleasure for the 27 years we lived there that each detail – trees, flowers, plants, birds – is still deeply engraved in my memory….
