Unfinished ink drawing..

Never did finish this drawing, though finding it again after many years and pondering on whether to finish it or not, Ive come to realise that perfection is not always the necessary essence of beauty. Instead; “There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”..Steve Maraboli

An A3 watercolour…

At the time I was working for Christies and submitted this painting for an annual staff charity exhibition, it supposedly was sold in the year 08. Fortunately the buyer didn’t buy it in the end and so it got sold and I won first prize the following year!

Joy

My first A3 portrait in Oil…

This was my first african painting, many more to come, showing Joy regardless of pain, place, person.

Hoping to soon exhibit by 2015 Painting for Change, theme to be: NorthEastWestSouth African.

Self Portrait

60x60cm box canvas oil painting..

I am South African and “peach” in colour..

But my Heart is Black, Indian, Chinese, Italian.. We may be an array of many colours on this planet but we can be of same heart with love for one another!

Feliz

60x60cm Box canvas oil painting…

Feliz came about whilst studying Spanish. Her photo was used in Babbel to translate the English word Happy. Thanks to Ferdinand Reus, whom I traced back to Flicker, I was given the rights to paint his original photograph titled Gambien Smile which is of a Fulani girl in Tabakoto…
