About "Cross I"
As a Christian the cross is most important to me. Therefor I tried to bring in a lot of symbolism in the painting as well. I also played with texture and goldleaf.
I had been teaching for 19 years before I had a massive heart attack in 2001 that resulted in early retirement. In 2005 I had a heart transplant and six months later I had the opportunity to start taking art classes with Marietjie le Roux. I have always been interested in art, but never had the opportunity. I enjoy what I am doing tremendously and I am doing it fulltime. Oil is my medium and detail is very important to me. A picture tells a thousand stories! I have sold quite a few paintings and it is always hard for me to part with them. I have also done a few commissions. I hope my paintings bring you the same joy as they bring me!
