The Dutch girl

All good art is given a title. This plate is called the Dutch girl.

An earlier Christmas gift from my friend.

She is going to have an exhibition of her work next year.

Bring me flowers

Bring me flowers and I will be happy.

My family arrived on Sunday for lunch and gave me these beautiful flowers.

We had a wonderful day together. Table tennis, swimming, dominoes and lots of laughter.

On edge

We have had the most incredible amount of rain so far this summer. 135mm since mid November. Days without sunshine but well worth it.

The garden is looking incredible.

I an amazed how the droplets gather on some leaves and seem to hold their shape forever.

Georg Restaurant and Tea Garden

I met Georg a few months ago to discuss doing a logo design for his restaurant in Aberdeen. I did one logo option that was off brief and that is the one he chose. He has been a wonderful client. I have enjoyed the opportunity of working on this project.

Sunday walk

After seeing @delaneyartist's posts on Instagram every weekend I eventually dragged a friend with me to take a walk through the Wilds. Cut short by rain.

I see the mistakes on the image layout but I have deleted the original working file so I cannot correct it, sorry.

Saturday sun up

On Saturday morning I rushed to catch the sun rising behind the PWC building in Midrand. Of course, by the time I got there it was already too late the sun was already above the horizon and as bright as a searchlight. So I worked with what I got.

Although I was too late for the sunrise I was there before any shops opened or anyone was about so I also managed to shoot the chairs at the restaurant on the corner.

More books and a meal

I went into Exclusive books for one book, a gift for someone. I bought that book and another five for myself. What an extravagance! I have a pile of about 11 unread books at home.

So, having had that splurge I decided I might as well go the whole way and stay for a meal at the EB Social Kitchen and Bar. Reading a book while I wait. A great morning.

I love the colours, and the distortions reflected in the ceiling panel.
