About "Praying Mantis"

My spiritual side influenced me .I wanted to do a pic of a praying mantis . looked and found this little guy in the garden and put him on a shelf to photograph . It was almost as tho he was posing for the pics and I had a problem trying to keep him away from the lens as he wanted to get into the camera . He was a friendly little guy and deserved to be painted . I wonder where he is now ...

About Ilad


Thank you for the visit.
Welcome to my world.
Africa is my home. My inspiration. The centre of my world.
A catalyst for wild imaginings …..

My Art

I just love Dali. I sign my artworks ILAD

I don’t conform to anything.
presently developing , what I call “ line art “.
I enjoy the “ expressiveness “ of water colours.
water colours should not be all dull and dappled.

I want my viewer to be drawn in by an explosion of colour,
the mind to recognize and rebuild the subject.
at times I need to make myself and the viewer uncomfortable.
I try and avoid subjects such as environment, poverty and crime - but often fail.

When I find myself doing line drawings in my mind,
of someone I am talking to,
or something I am just looking at,
I take out my oils or acrylics just to clear my mind.

I hope you, my viewer, enjoy my artwork.
Please feel free to send a critique of any of my works,
more importantly – buy them.
I don’t have any more hanging space at home.

Yours sincerely,
