Helichrysum and Restio (Pause series)

Title: Helichrysum and Restio (Pause series)
Size: 600x 600mm
Medium: Oil on stretched canvas
Year: 2023

In this painting, I used strong colours and sweeping brush strokes to portray a windy day on Table Mountain. My themed fynbos plants are Helichrysum Italicum and Restios.

This artwork is part of my “Pause series” of paintings:

Pause: To interrupt an activity temporarily before continuing.

To make a brief stop of delay.

To Take a break, wait, …

This is where I am in my journey as an artist in the first half of 2023.  Pause to me, does not mean that I stopped creating! On the contrary – I am working on new artworks daily.  To me, Pause mean to take a break before I continue without changing direction.  Pause to listen. Pause to see.

I am not sure where this year will take me, but I will keep on spending time in nature, painting God’s creation and follow where He leads.
