Guest Artist - Joan Knoesen (2)

Joan Knoesen - Wuppertal 

I am back home and will now have a chance to digitally document my grandmother's art - I hope...
There is a story behind this painting - like all paintings I guess, so I'll endeavour to find out the details and share it with you all.
This is a painting of Wuppertal, a small town 72km southeast of Clanwilliam and about 250km from Cape Town. The little shop on the left hand side is where they manufacture and sell veldskoene. A veldskoen is a basic leather shoe - directly translated as 'field shoe'.
