Harbour Town Adventures 

Cauliflower and goats cheese soup, with pumpkin seed juice, as a starter. Crayfish on the Weber, with  Lourensford Viognier and strawberries dipped in dark chocolate the menu.

My shoulder not enjoying my painting antics for some reason. Throwing my body around too much? The new collar bone ‘bump’ an ominous sign that all is not as it should be. Ice and meds back in force to tackle a suspected infection.

Mad scramble to bring cushions in, stack fire wood, ensure cupboards have secure stops and doors are locked in anticipation of the storm front howling towards us.

Apparently, dogs who do not show a ‘paw-preference’ are likely to be noise intolerant making them poor candidates for training. Not sure whether this applies to humans but would be a reason I tend to go bonkers with loud noises? More likely, my trampolining blood sugars!

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. Awards and Exhibitions 2016, Special Merit Award Winner and Honourable Mention 'Art of outstanding quality', LST Open Art Exhibition 2015, 2014, 2013, 2011 and 2009 Honourable Mention London International Creative Competition 2008 Finalist at the Thapong Botswana Artist of the Year 2002 Finalist at Patchings, Nottinghamshire Selected for the Permanent World Children’s Exhibition in Toulouse France.
