I have not had much time for blogging lately but I am still around. This painting of an African Lady Titled "African Beauty" is my latest piece. It is quite a large mixed media painting, acrylic and oil 1m x 70 cm on stretched canvas.

The photo does not do it enough justice, I took quite a few but just could not get it right. I am not sure if it was the lighting but I tried various settings, with a flash and without and eventually chose the best of a not so good bunch of photo's.

So far this has been my best year for sales, I was hoping to build up a reasonable stock for the Fifa world cup football tournament starting in a weeks time. Unfortunately though just about everything is sold and I only have a few pieces available.

Right now our city seems soccer mad and the tourists and teams are starting to pile in for the extravaganza; and the leisurely pace that I work at will only produce a few more paintings before it ends in a months or so.

I hope you enjoy the painting.
