Township by day
About "Township by Day"
Have painted several scenes of life in the township, where they live cheek by jowl, children play with whatever they can find and even rainy day puddles are for fun. Mothers clean house & throw water out into the open - life again lived in a basic way so different to many of us - with a sense of freedom & spontaneity. Roofs are set at every kind of angle, again a contrast to our neatly ordered lives!!!! Enjoy this scene of colours & shapes & LIFE.
I appreciate all facets of life, the 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 & watercolor, as well as sculpture in clay. Have been commissioned to do murals, landscapes again with the feeling of traveling into the picture. Often have a spiritual message in the subject matter and have written short notes as I have meditated on the artwork afterward. 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". Also in recent years has taken part in exhibitions held at Liebrecht Gallery, Somerset West & Marsh Rose Mall, Grabouw, 4ArtSake Gallery, Hermanus & La Vierge Winery & Restaurant. 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!!!!!
