Recent Work

One of the best things about going away is coming home.

After a few days exploring the antique shops of Port Elizabeth, and a couple more roaming the hills of the Winterberg, I open the door of my art studio and feel my heart soar.  The break has done me good and now I stand in the doorway looking at the artwork on the wall as if I’m seeing it for the first time.  I am satisfied with the four large aloe paintings that I have been working on for the past six months. Tomorrow I must sign them and take them to the framer and then work must begin on the exhibitions I have planned for 2015.

I reach for my camera in order to record the moment.

These four aloe artworks will soon be on their way to Cape Town and though I will miss their company, I am happy to know that they have found a good home.

    Hi Sal, Spud and I have thoroughly enjoyed your incredible art. Spud uses water colours, acrylic and oils. He enjoys them all, but has never worked with pastels. He thinks your work is amazing. Lovely to see.

    • Hi Lin. Wonderful to hear from you and so pleased that you have enjoyed seeing my work. I didn’t know that Spud also paints! I love working in pastel,though it can be a very challenging medium. Like anything, it improves with practice! So good to be in contact with you again.

    Your play with light has captured such different atmospheres in the first and second subjects!
