About "Architect's Dilemma"
When Alvera started searching the internet for information about art, she kept going back to the art listed as surreal. Not knowing what surreal meant, she began to explore the meaning of the word in her own way, through painting what for her felt surreal. This painting was one of her most cherished pieces. She used to say that it made her feel like being in Italy again and looking up at the mosaic of buildings on the side of the hill.
Alvera Walker passed away in Feb 2008 at the age of 82. She started painting at 62 when she joined a local art club in Port Alfred. Within a year she was selling potboilers at the local coffee shops. Alvera loved painting the wildlife big five, animals which she grew up with in the Rhodesian bushveld. She spent the last ten years of her life near the sea in Port Alfred, a lovely quiet seaside town in the Eastern Cape. Many of Alvera's magnificent seascapes and dolphins were inspired by the beauty of this place. She leaves a legacy of only 150 paintings that include birds, dolphins, wildlife and flowers. She also painted some whimsical paintings that she called her "What if? "paintings, which were strongly influenced by Salvador Dali. Many of her paintings have been sold to art lovers around the world and now grace some of the most beautiful homes in the world.
