Kaleidoscope of Colour


Congratulations to Danel Hanekom from Pretoria, who are the lucky winner of the raffle that we had during our exhibition. Unfortunately there can be only one winner. We would also like to thank everybody who participated.

Lucky Draw

Everyone who came to our exhibition on Saturday qualified for the Lucky Draw. Our winner is Ansie Strydom. Congratulations to you Ansie. Here is a picture of the painting that Ansie won.

Success, success, success!!!

That is how we can describe our first self-organised art exhibition, Kaleidoscope of Colour, which took place on Saturday, 27 October. (Artists were Simonette van Oudtshoorn, Marietjie du Toit, Adele van Andel, Christelle Coetzee and Anton Betz.) It exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations. God blessed us with the most amazing day. There were a constant flow of people from 9am till after 6pm. Everybody enjoyed the snacks and wine, but most of all they enjoyed our very professional display of high quality art.

People walked up and down, taking pictures, enjoying the tranquil atmosphere, breathing in the beauty of the venue itself and the stunning paintings from all the artists. It was just awesome to see how everyone enjoyed the day. We received numerous compliments and positive feedback. Everybody just wants to know when our next exhibition is going to be.

Above all else we were also blessed in that we sold 23 out of the 55 paintings that were exhibited on the day. We also received a few commissions for paintings.

We give God the glory for all the amazing miracles He performed on Saturday.

I believe that even greater things will flow out of this very successful exhibition. We will always aim to provide better and better quality art at the most affordable prices at our next exhibitions.

If you missed out and couldn't be there on Saturday, the whole exhibition can be viewed on my website from Friday  2 November. Paintings that were not sold, will still be available online at exhibition prices, but only until the end of December.

We were so extremely busy the whole day that I didn't have time to take lots of pictures, but here follows a few:

First it took lots of hard work to prepare the venue and to hang all the paintings. Here my friend Nico were helping us.

Quick Note

Painting of the Month: October

It is already the 6th of October and I have only now posted a new "Painting of the Month" on my website. My apologies for that. I have been so busy painting and preparing for our upcoming exhibition the end of the month (Read more here: Kaleidoscope of Colour), that I haven't had time to update the website. But I have done it now and you click HERE to go directly to October's painting. If you buy it now you save $100.

Painting to be Won

Kaleidoscope of Colour Art Exhibition


This is the painting that can be won on the day of the exhibition. The raffle is open to all South Africans - you do NOT need to be in Cape Town and you do NOT need to come to the exhibition. You only need to buy a ticket of R50 and your name will be entered. If you are not in Cape Town and you want to enter, please e-mail me and I will send you the necessary details for entering.

The painting is named Sunset Beach; it is done in oil on boxed canvas and the size is 750 x 500mm. It is an original MS du Toit painting and it would normally sell for about R1700. So it is a very good investment if you can win this painting and you only paid R50 which is the price of two lattes! What do you have to loose? Unfortunately if you are not in Cape Town, and you win the painting you will also be liable for the postage. But it would still be a good investment. So please send those e-mails and buy your tickets!

Kaleidoscope of Colour - Art Exhibition

You are invited!!!!

We have been planning and painting very hard for this exhibition that will take place on the 27th of October. The other artists and myself are very exited and we trust that it will be a fantastic day. There will be many exiting surprises on the day, so be sure not to miss it if you are anywhere in or near Cape Town that day!

To mention just two things: we will have a raffle where one of my own paintings worth about R1700 can be won. Tickets for the raffle is R50 and can also be bought online. This raffle is open to anybody, even if you cannot come to the exhibition. More about that tomorrow!

There will also be a Lucky Draw where someone that attended the exhibition will be the winner of a smaller painting worth about R550.

The whole exhibition will also be made available for viewing and buying online from the 30th of October.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
