About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Chilly whisper in the breeze...

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm 

There is a chilly whisper in the breeze reminding us that winter will soon be here. We've really had a cold past two weeks, but today the sun is shining brightly, the temperature is in the middle 20C's and it's now turning into that blissful time of year when it's a joy to be outside in nature before we settle indoors to sit out the winter. 

I’ll be somewhere outside, 
soaking up those last few rays 
of autumn sun… 
what are you up to? 



  1. Ah yes those Autumn days creeping up and winter nearly on us. A beautiful reminder of the coming winter which in itself is special. By the way, I'm in Sweden and it's supposed to be Spring here - the temps are still sitting round 2-6 degC in the early morning.

    1. Aha! Thought you'd escape the winter here! Ha ha! But I do hope you enjoy your trip and thanks for your lovely comment here!

  2. Your watercolours are truly inspiring! I have recently started delving into watercolours (usually, I paint in oils). While surfing the net I stumbled across you amazing blog (and work) - will definitely pop in again.
    (PS- visiting from Pta!)

    1. Wow! Lovely to meet someone from Pretoria Veronica! Thank you so much for your wonderful, heart-warming words, I appreciate that. And it's great that you are venturing into the world of watercolours, you will find it absolutely intoxicating. I wish you well with your art classes and hope you enjoy every minute of it!

  3. Très jolies aquarelles ! bravo !
