Hello Adele,Dankie dat ons Vriende kan wees . Hoop ons inspereer mekaar tot groter hoogtes. Ek self het vir n tyd lank nie by die kwasse uit gekom nie. My lewensmatjie en siels genoot is na n lang lyding aan kanker verlede jaar einde Junie oorlede. My lewe was toetaal ontwrig en ek mis hom so..! Dit is nou eers wat ek daarna voel om weer te begin skilder. Die aleen wees vang my soms nog steeds, dan vlug ek maar na die kinders in Gauteng. Ek beplan reeds om in Julie Kaap toe te gaan my broer word 60. Hy woon in Durbalville. Alle voorspoed met die aanbouery. Hoop die groot verfkwas word gou verruil vir n kleiner een, want jy het n wonderlike talent. Groete Zib
Ek was gelukkig genoeg om saam met my broer en sy vrou Augrabies te besoek so 'n klompie jaar gelede. 'n Wonderlike plek! Ons was oppad om te gaan blommetjies kyk. Kakemas is ook 'n uitsonderlikie plekkie. Jy was gelukkig om daar groot te word. Mooi bly, Louis
Oh you sweet thing you! Thank you for the lovely, thoughtful gift. It made me smile! I love that you are sharing this part of my life with me. We shall be great friends and have such fun painting together! Have not had a chance to look at the florum this morning, but will soon. Did you post your lady? I got all my gray paint mixed yesterday and hope to start my pots when I get through with all the e-mail. Ro
Thanks for replying. I love your artwork. Your abstract is so amazing...as are the other paintings.. Looking at your paintings sure bring back happy memories. I miss Cape Town for it's natural beauty. I used to paint folk art in acrylics. I have actually no idea how to use them for fine art!! I try to focus on the watercolour medium only, as I still have so much to learn and don't won't to waste my time fiddling with other mediums, and being master of none. I liked using oils it's so forgiving. One day when I have my own studio and mastered watercolour I would like to try oils again. Your paintings are an inspiration!!! Have a great day also...
Where about in Cape Town do you live? I lived in Trovato. Not even sure how to spell it now. :)) Watercolour is unpredictable, has a mind of its own, and a difficult medium to master. My art space is in our living area, and my husband doesn't like the smell of oils. So I had to change my medium. I personally think you are better off working in oils. You have better control over your work.. Your art is beautiful. I love it!!
