About "Still Life with Books"
The shoe in the painting was mine, about 58 years ago and the wine glass, one of a selection of 'woodstock glass'produced by the South African Glass Company(Ltd) Greenmarket-Square and Papendorp.The first in South Africa.
The wine glass are standing on some second hand books on poetry.
This still life for me represent peace and quiet in the late afternoon.

I was born and raised on a farm in the Swartland area near Riebeek West
With my art I attempt to express what truth is - something that cannot be measured on the laboratory bench. According to Soren Kierkegaard the truth is what ennobles.
'This is a true story which may well appear stranger than fiction, since the truth unhappily, from the point of view of those who try to serve it, is always more than literal or statistical fact. . . .
' Van der Post , L. 1975. A Mantis Carol. Cox & Wyman Ltd G B
'the morning wind forever blows, the poem of creation is uninterrupted; but few are the ears that hear it'
Bode, C., 1975. The Portable Thoreau. Penguin Books
At present I enjoy working on paper with mixed media.
