Sunflowers in a ceramic vase

Acrylics on Masonite, 36 x 51 cm (= about 14 x 20 inches):


This one is a bit larger than my usual thing, and as such I did not put it up on my Bid-or-Buy store, because it is likely a bit too unwieldy to send anywhere by mail. It will hopefully feature in a local exhibition in due course.

Red jungle fowl

Acrylics on Masonite, 10 x 15 cm:


These are the critters domestic chickens are descended from. I experimented a bit here with a much looser, expressionist sort of style; I have yet to decide whether I like it!

Two blue waxbills

Acrylics on Masonite, 15 x 20 cm:


When you wander around in dry thorn veld, it's all muted greens and earth colors. Until you glimpse a little flock of blue waxbills; they always come as a pleasant surprise, their powder blue plumage looking strangely out of place in surroundings. Which is perhaps one reason why I enjoy painting them.
