Welcome to my Art Blog...I am a self taught artist with the addage of "Expressing life through colour"...
Art is something I enjoy - specifically watercolour painting - though I do enjoy dabbling in acrylics. Like all things in life, "practice makes perfect" so I'm using this Art Blog as a reference to see how my 'talent' develops.
Feel free to post a comment - I'd love to hear from you.

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'.
