For Things to come....

22 x 11
oil on canvas

A commission for my friend Anita who planted young pomegranates trees on her smallholding.
Small trees need to grow 2-3 years to bear the first fruit but for a substantial harvest 5-6 years.
The pomegranate with the branch and leaves is from my neighbour's garden, the other too
are commercially grown ones from the grocery store.
Have a look at Anita's blog:

Adam's Figs

oil on canvas
A reminder of warmer days, juicy and sweet Adam's figs.
Stellenbosch is facing a very cold June so far with snow on the mountains already. Not my kind of fun!
This is the last paintings so far in the black on black reflection series.
