W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

Peace is every step.
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with me.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy.

—Thich Nhat Hanh

The last Cosmos of the season – the show of Cosmos next to the roads in our area (Tarlton, South Africa), hasn’t been that great this year and now, as the flowers start to wane, the insects are making the most of the last pollen and the Autumn sunshine. Soon all that will be left is the yellowing leaves and dry stalks.

  1. 11th April 2012 – Included in the FEATURES GALLERY in ‘Artists of Still Life’
  2. 25th April 2012 – FEATURED in Painters Universe

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.
