Fynbos: Spring on Table Mountain II

Title: Fynbos:  Spring on Table Mountain (Response series)
Size: 1700 x 1100mm
Medium: Oil on stretched canvas
Year: 2022

In this large oil painting, I combined some of my favourite fynbos flowers: red Watsonias; yellow Helichrysums; white Chinkerinchees; creamy Brunia and yellow Leucadendrons.

When it is Spring-time in the Cape, nature blooms abundantly! The best time to view fynbos!

The shapes and colours create impact and movement in this strong and large composition.

This work is part of my “Response” series:

“Response” is a series of oil paintings created from a place of abundance and deep gratitude.  The lyrics of the song “Gratitude”, by Brandon Lake, resonate with me: “I’ve got one response, I’ve got just one move…”.

I have but one response to abundance and goodness – and that is a thankful life.
Every brush stroke comes from within and is intuitively applied to the canvas as an act of thankfulness. Each artwork an anthem of praise. I find pleasure in expressing my gratitude in this way.

As the fynbos in creation brings praise to its Creator by being what it is: plants that grow, flower, and flourish in all conditions – so I will bring praise by being who I am created to be: an artist.

My art is my gratitude.
