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.
