A boy’s dream | dream

THE BIKE #3919 20x24cm
The Bike #3919
Acrylic. 20x25cm.

While I was exhibiting my art at our local Mall, one of the shop assistants, a young boy probably under 20 came in to browse.
He told me that he loved bicycles and had a dream that he would one day live in a big house and own a bike. He asked if I could paint a picture for him to look at every day.
The house had a big door and the bike stood outside, just waiting to be used.
I came up with this little one.

It is not often that young people realise that visualisation is so important in working towards your goals and dreams. I would not be surprised if he does achieve his dream one day. But in this country, would suggest that he works for the government instead. Huge salaries if you move up the ladder. Then he will get his big house. Probably will exchange the bike for a fancy car too.  Dreams with passion become possible.

Lizz’s Bizz: How to handle a drought my way.

                       IMG_8157
At the moment we are in a severe drought situation in South Africa.  One sees doom and gloom and food and veg prices increasing astronomically.  It is quite hard to not get into the rut of complaining about it all, when there is little one can do to change it.

SO:  I have decided to paint a series of pictures depicting water and hopefully these paintings will bring some comfort and peace to those viewing them. 

This Diptych of a forest pool is available singly or together.
"Forest Pool 1&2"   acrylic,  30x40cm each R650 each or R1250 for the pair.#3895 and #3896.  

How would you cope with this situation?
