Kael Abstract (36 inches sq Oil on canvas)
This is one of my newest paintings.  I loved this entire painting and the most exciting thing was how it came out just as I imagined it!

Middleplaas Farm
This is my second landscape ever.  We were camping at this site earlier in the year.  I loved the way the fence danced in the dappled sunlight and the sharp light of the sun in the distance.

I am really battling with the technicality of posting my photos.  The camera keeps "bending" the painting and I find I must crop some sides out to keep out non-painting information.  There are many other challenges like glare, keeping the colours true etc.  If you have any suggestions please drop a line!  I've got one book on Digital Photography and I'm going to get another about photoshop or similar.  So I hope my posting quality will improve!

Kenyan Boy at Nap Time

I have finished the Nap Time in Kenya

I LOVED and HATED this painting!  And now...I am very happy.  I really love the wickedly crooked bench and the stone floor.  I have softened the stones more since this photo! -But I promise not to touch him again.  I love the shine of light on his face.  It was so fun to play with some parts tight and some looose!
