Part of the African experience is painting scenes from the country. The Karoo is a wonderful place to paint and has been the inspiration for many artists. The wonderful baobab (or upside down tree) is a magnificent site in the veld, but nothing is quite as breathtaking and frightening as a bushfire
Living in the lee of Table Mountain gives me great inspiration, and although the raging fires seen in the past few years have been quite deadly, they are awe-inspiring. A different view of the cable car was a must to paint.
