The Joy of Art Sings in my Soul

Painting Out and About – Fijnbos, Eastern Cape – 2010

This was a great day shared with our art group and families.  Lovely food, beautiful scenery and hours of happy painting.

Wine Food and Art

Sketching "Pate Fois and Gras" our names for the geese in the gardens of Delheim


My sister, Lynda and I had a wonderful day visiting Oude Libertas and Delheim wine estates.  We picniced on the lawn with beautiful people, laughing children and lazy dogs.  What a wonderful vibe!  The food was utterly delicious at Oude Libertas market and I sketched a family sitting on the lawn in front of us.  Clive and Ann were celebrating Clive’s 60th birthday with their family.

We drove to Delheim to sit in the peaceful gardens, and gingerly escaped the “loving” beak attention of the triplet geese -Pate’ or was it Foie or Gras, kindly named by Lynda.  The sketch was made on the lawn keeping our eyes alert to any goose subterfuge.

I want to live in Franschoek or Stellenbosch.
