Another protea with really fluffy and fury leafends in an incredible rich dark, redbrown colour contrasting the beautiful soft reds of the flower and the bluegreens of the leaves.

It is always with amazement to realise that the protea is an indigenous wildflower in the Southern Cape of South Africa, namely in the fynbos region.

Guava with Leaves


8x8
oil on canvas

I discovered a small guava tree hidden behind a lot of other trees in my garden. It had just a few guavas hanging on it, but some branches had these
beautiful varigated red leaves......
They had to be painted!

One of the last egg paintings I did and I must say that I am still keen on the subject!
Eggs are just so special to paint......
