Acrylic painting on canvas. Fish from Kabeljoubank on the West Coast of South Africa. Do you recognize Table Mountain, a well-known landmark, in the distance?

Snoek are first salted and then hung out to dry in the sea breeze before it is sold to hotels and restaurant to be soaked over night and then cooked into traditional dishes.

    • Ja nee, dis hoe ek die Kaap se strand-areas onthou. Het menige male by hierdie vissermanne snoek of kabeljou gekoop vir ’n visbraai. Dis tyd dat ek weer ’n slag daar kom, mens vergeet so gou.
