It´s been a very fertile, almost feminine, winter with rain and sun alternating unpredictably to render the landscape vibrant and pulsating with life. Here in Baardskeerdersbos we built a voluptuous clay oven, while I completed a standing nude in bronze, and painted lots.

Join us for the unveiling of Niël Jonker´s new bronze, "Colourful smoke" on Saturday 1 October at 10h30. Stay for a vegetarian lunch and enjoy the other solo shows on the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route all weekend. To offset all this femininity I have asked the new band of grey-haired rockers, The Pencilmen, to fill the air with acoustic blues rock on Sunday.

Happy birthday, Arch!

Many of my recent landscape paintings were done in my home region of the Little Karoo, where the veld is the most spectacular in living memory. The Succulent Karoo veld in flower is a very special experience, and I am very glad to have caught a bit of it on canvas. A living expression of light.

There is still room on the Sourdough Bread-making Experience on Thursday and Friday, 29 and 30 September, and for those that missed the clay oven building party, see the album on facebook and build your own.
