Anyone for cricket?
About "Anyone for Cricket?"
I saw this picture and their conversation seems so engrossing, the casual hand on the cricket bat, their relaxed comfortable poses - all this just cried out to be captured- I so enjoyed transferring the idea onto canvas that after my basic underpainting & blocking out of composition, it took me 2 afternoons to capture the freedom & sense of togetherness with the 2 women. The title could be no other as if they themselves were ready to get on to the field and have a go!
I appreciate all facets of life, beauty of creation in all its diversity- so paint people (expressive faces & those that tell a story) flowers, landscapes, cats are a particular love also. Enjoy colour & texture, so oils is preferred medium though have worked in acrylic & watercolour, as well as sculpture in clay. Have been commisioned to do murals, landscapes again with the feeling of travelling into the picture. Often have a spiritual message in the subject matter and have written short notes as I have meditated on the artwork afterwards. Being creative is very therapeutic for me and I know others that it has helped to be set 'free', so believe in the means of expressing one's inner self.
December 2000 -1st Solo, then each year thereafter joint exhibitions at Hermanus Art Society, Vermont Art Circle and with Group of 12 Women artists (Book Club) The latter ones generally with a theme & in 2008 exhibited "Miniatures".

Latest commissions by Dept of Tourism, Western Cape.October 2010 exhibition as part of the Vermont Art Circle at Hornbill Gallery, Hemel-en-Aarde Village, Hermanus. My 2nd solo exhibition was held at Bellini Gallery, Main Road, Hermanus 10 years after my first. from 3 to 12 December 2010. The theme I chose, "People & Places" expressed my main emphasis & I was able to paint portraits of the people with whom I work daily plus friends in the community on Volmoed where I live & work. I was able to bless the staff by giving them their portraits as a Christmas gift - the joy & laughter that brought was very special. The official opening on 3 December was well attended & great fun with several sales also. We were all pleased with the outcome but not sure that I feel like painting right now!!!!!
