Campari Tomatoes


                                                   4x8
                                             oil on canvas

Strange enough it is the first time ever that I painted tomatoes!
This one is a new middle size variety grown at Lourensford Estate in Somerset West with an intensive flavour...... and a beautiful appearance!

Garlic on White


8x8
oil on canvas

I have painted so many little "Garlic" paintings but this one was really a challenge, too much white on white?
Otherwise a rainy and cold Monday in Stellenbosch, everyone is still on holidays and town is quiet......

Young Aubergines


8x8
oil on canvas

This was really fun!!!
I used completely different colours than normal while painting these aubergines. I live the cerulian blue as the reflecting edge, but as always the original is far better and not as blue, far more subtle.....
