The Traveling Diabetic

Knysna

Higher than expected fasting BS levels.

Insides churned to mush from the jarring cycle along the contours through the forest.

Nothing in my daily food tracker that should have pushed my blood sugars to such levels. Nuts with a couple of glasses of wine at friends and the cappuccino after the cycle being the cause of my daily carbs being above the 20gram level I’m trying to maintain.

It does mean a day of vigilance and while the colder weather may have been an excuse to hide in the studio (read, lazy), I will need to schedule vigorous exercise into the day.

Perhaps it’s the moon?

Be inspired by the high-energy art of award winning artist, Jandre. An emotional artist, the influence of the Impressionists on his Representational style is evident from his limited pallet of colours, however, it is to Kandinsky that he looks for his inspiration where objects depicted arise out of pure emotion. In this focus on form and colour, he asks questions of the viewer to see beyond the mere representational to the emotional signal contained in clusters of line and colour, reinforced by ridges of light made possible through his technique of painting with his fingers, imparting his emotions directly onto canvas. Traveling extensively, his material is taken from his environment, dominated by his work as a humanitarian – most recently with the United Nations in South Sudan - in post conflict, emergency response, and in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
