Sail on Silver Girl ...

Another quick little painting. (Painted with this tune in my head).
What do you say; should I sell this one for next to nothing as well? :)

Easter Spray

I don't think I've posted this one yet?
Nice one for Easter seeing as it's all chocolate coloured. ;)
I thought I'd leave it uncropped, to a degree, to give you an idea of scale.  This is a teeny tiny painting, literally only 150mm x 150mm.
For fun I sold it for R100.
It gives me a lot of joy seeing people enjoying getting a good deal.
"Coming up for Air", 15x15x1cm, Oil on Canvas
Status: Sold
I pray for a peaceful Easter for you; that you may enjoy everything that comes from having the knowledge that you are saved and from the knowledge that you are loved beyond measure.

Going away.

So, I'm taking some well earned leave.(and am sick as a dog again as usual for every time I go away!)
I'm off to the Bushman's Neck area of the Berg for a week.
So obviously I will be offline until my return BUT don't worry ...
I WILL be taking my brushes and will be painting lots of wavescapes for your viewing pleasure.
You look after you!

As Endless as the Ocean ...

"As Endless as the Ocean ...", Oil on Canvas, 120cm x 50cm x 4cm.
Status: Available 

Do you ever feel like you are just going through the motions? Just getting through each day just because you have to? You shut yourself off, fill your time, do your bit, entertain yourself from time to time and distract yourself to keep from thinking too hard, too much? More and more I find myself in that exact state of mind. There is a hollow part of me ... a peice missing and a consequent profound sadness that results from being incomplete. If I was not a Christian, not saved, then that space would consume me and swallow me whole. As it is, faith keeps me going.
I paint. Not because it helps fill the void, but because it helps express it. It is a way of sharing how I feel ... the depth of my emotion; of saying what I am not able to, not permitted to say. Some people see it, and most tactfully avoid asking the obvious questions. Some ask and I tactfully have to answer without giving the real answer or avoid answering altogether. So I keep on keeping on, and I paint, and I will paint despite everything that stands in the way of it.  ... and I will not stop!
