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!

Sketching in the Game Reserve

Some sketches I did while visiting the Krugersdorp Game Reserve (Gauteng, South Africa). The herds stay quite close to the road and don't mind cars in the vicinity, making it easy to do some quick sketches. Some watercolour pencils and a bottle of water is all it takes!



  1. Really like your blog Maree. I love free, spontanious sketches like yours and feel they sometimes have an edge which is lacking in more finished work. They are a true moment captured in time. I've never tried watercolour sketching outdoors but I will soon. You have inspired me. Thank you.

    1. Wow, thank you very much and glad you like the blog Kev! Sketching outdoors is a wonderful exercise which I'm sure you'll enjoy immensely!
