This is my latest painting studyng the transition of this particular protea plant from bud to bloom to its dried out, but interesting, ending. The Cape sugarbird sits intrigued. #paintinginprogress#proteaart#lifecycles
Painting some pomegranates until my time to paint ran out and it was holiday time with my family. There goes red juicy pomegranates. Family time rocks though. Pomegranates too. #letsgocamping#itstheholidayseason
Just show up! I was so disappointed with my work yesterday... a whole morning of mud. My colours were off, composition, even my painting style...everything. I'm here again in my studio. Showing up... and going to give it another try. My whole body is saying 'run' and I'm procrastinating like crazy.
I recently heard such a great saying 'suck it up princess' Alright it's time!
In Cape Town we are having a severe drought. My garden has disappeared and dried out... but in one way it is opening up a chance to recreate my entire garden and outside space. I already have had to learn about gardening in a windy hot dry suburb, Lakeside (not a lush green countryside as the name suggests) but now it will push me more to source better suited plants for my area. I'm starting small and working on little pockets ... hanging succulent baskets. Awesomeness. #gardening#smallareas#workingwithinnature#waterwiseplants#theartofgardening
