Artist's Description

I have loved nasturtiums since I was a child (although I knew them by their Afrikaans name of kappertjies then). They were easy to grow and produced loads of flowers over a long period. I remember always being on the lookout for interesting colours: the ones with petals that shaded from red in the centre to yellow at the edges were my favourite.
I still have them in my garden and enjoy their beautiful colours when they bloom in the beginning of our South African winter. (May, June)
This painting is a commission for someone who saw a similar framed painting I had at the flee market last Saturday in our town. Original sold! ;-)
