September already . . .?

These last few weeks and days flowed into each other without us recognising the difference between each following day. We were just reaching forward to the end of the tunnel. We were in and out of the hospital with Father-in-law, and in-laws visiting, trying to help and make things easier for us. At last we could slow down somewhat although everything is not quite what it should be.

On a more arty note : I am participating in The Drakenstein Art Exibition starting on Tuesday in the Breytenbach Centre with these two paintings.

Oil on bord. This painting was done after Henry O. Tanner, The Banjo Lesson, in 1893. I was touched by the feeling (atmosphere) in the copy of the original painting in an art book - Mississippi blues ???

This one I titled : "First light", in Afrikaans "Eerste lig". Oil on bord. (Not a very good photograph). It was painted 2008, black and white.
