It's been a long time I know and I must apologize. I have been busy with those elephants that must be send to the USA next week. I am donating this painting to the International Elephant Foundation and it is going to be auctioned at a fundraising dinner. The funds will go towards the conservation of African elephants.
The painting is 1.5 x 1.2m in size. That was quite something to paint, but Ienjoyed it very much and just hope that they will get a very good price for that.
August is portrait month. I am entering two portraits for the SPI National Portrait Award 2013 competition which is sponsored by Sanlam and VISI and held at the Rust en Vrede Gallery in Durbanville. I hope I win the R100 000 first prize!!! Hey, I must be optimistic! Unfortunately I may not show my paintings to you yet, but I promise I will show you soon. At this stage I can just say: I surprised myself!
The next big thing in my life is our annual Caleidoscope of Colour Art Exhibition which will be held again in October. This is the place to on 19 October - don't be anywhere else. We will again be exhibiting various artists' work at very affordable prices. There will again be a Lucky Draw as well as a Raffle where you can win two of ...wait for it.... yes you guessed right, MY paintings. So keep coming back tothisblog for more information.
