Arum lily painted in lipstick
Earlier today I spotted some unusual arum lilies at one of Johannesburg’s best-known fruit and flower shops, and thought I’d tackle them with lipstick. The finished work reminds me a little of the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Another painting in my series for the Pulse of the City campaign, this time with a touch of humour. All the words in the painting refer to sounds you can hear in Joburg, from hadedas, to taxis, to barking dogs.
Sounds of Joburg
This is my latest work for the Pulse of the City campaign to launch the Range Rover Evoque. In it I am trying to evoke the mood of the city, its coiling energy and brooding undercurrents. All of the writing on the work describes mood words such as “Angry’, “Tense’, “Optimistic” and so on.
Last weekend I painted two versions of a dying rose. I had managed to find a fabulous dark brownish purple on sale at Clicks and I made plenty of use of it in these two works – so much so that I made a special trip to Clicks this week to get more.
