About "Rose Compassion"
I visited a farm in the Suurveld close to Patensie in Dec 2008. It rained throughout the night and the roses in the garden was so fresh the next morning. The two roses I painted reminded me of a husband and wife where the wife requires a bit of tender love and care.
Antons painting interest started at school but sports, woman and cars got the best of him. One of his paintings at school won an International Award in Australia. He revisited his painting passion again from 2006 onwards, is self taught and does not specialise in a specific style. His paintings is a reflection of what he experience when encountering different views of life and he only paints what he has experienced. Painting has become more than a hobby and now boarders on an obsession. Maybe this is his way of catching up on lost time[0x1][0x1]or trying to tell his story through pictures rather than words.
