New Year, new work, new possibilities

This year is beginning on an exciting note for me. A very prestigious gallery in Plettenberg Bay has agreed to be my agent. The response to the work has been very positive, and there is now the possibility of a solo or joint exhibition there in a few months time, and better still, perhaps being part of a group to exhibit in America too. Nothing cast in concrete yet, but just the possibility is exciting. Here are some of the works I did at the end of last year, which are now in Plett.
Flattening the forests 2

These two started out as protest paintings depicting the treasure of the trees on the one hand, and the money to be made from flattening them on the other. But My husband pointed out that they look much too cheerful to be protest art, and look like a celebration of trees instead!
In war, only the arms dealers win 2

A return to another favourite theme!
Africa's children: living in the shadows
