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!

Unobstructed view

“The whole essence of good drawing – and of good thinking, perhaps – is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be.” 
— Chuck Jones 

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gms

After the winter veld fires and now that we've had our first summer rains, the landscape is once again turning green and we have an unobstructed view towards the Magaliesberg Mountains in the distance.



  1. Love this loose and expressive sketch. Beauty abounds. :)

    1. thanks ever so much Serena, appreciate your lovely words!

  2. That is a really intriguing quote! Your painting does just that... brings out the beauty of the fence posts and the grasses and the overall mood of this place on this day... It's so artistically painted. Congratulations!

    1. Aaah, thank you for your kind words Katherine, really appreciate that!
