About "San Grandfather"

In the photograph, he just had the saddest eyes! His face speaks of years of hardship, and he's smiling, but his eyes are still sad! I love it when a painting has a little story attached to it (even though I make up my own sometimes)- and this is not only portraying friendliness, but also a lifetime of brutal, hard, trying-to-live existence and experience. I hope I've captured some of it when I painted him.

About Heloise

Heloise De Beer

I've been drawing since I was quite young and people encouraged me to go on, which was very good, because young children tend to stop drawing at about 10 years of age. So, after school I did stop drawing/painting and only started again by going for lessons privately a long time afterwards, and eventually ended up going to Ruth Prowse School of Art for refreshment. I went on doing fabric painting professionally and sold quite a few African stuff to overseas buyers through a shop. A few years ago started with oils and eventually tried acrylics, now I do not want to go back to oils, I like painting with acrylics so much. I love faces. I like to paint people too. I also really love colours and to paint realistically. Abstract art, unless it evokes an emotion in me with the use of colour, I don't understand fully - I just like it when any painting 'speaks' to you. So, I guess, realistic art in most forms appeals to me, especially accompanied by bright, vibrant colours - I just love it when a painting 'jumps' out at you!
I've also recently started doing mosaics, what a pleasure. Did two big "paintings" and then went on to practical stuff, like pot stands, and mirrors. Hard work, but so rewarding and colourful, the criteria that appeals to me.
I would like to paint landscape commissions, which I have done recently and quite enjoyed doing! And in the meantime I went for lessons in oil-painting, and started doing oil painting again.
