On a recent trip to Knysna ,Emma and I walked into an Art Gallery we had not seen before.There were a series of interleading rooms and in the last one I found 2 artworks that left me spellbound.They were quite the most beautiful portraits of women I have seen in a long time.The works are huge and only 2 ,side by side filled the wallspace.
We stayed, breathing in the beauty created by Candace Charlton ,the artist.
Candace Charlton (Dutch/South African, B. 1968) was born and grew up in South Africa. She studied Fine Art at Rhodes University, majoring in Sculpture and History of Art. In 1998 she held her first solo exhibition. In 2000 she moved to Europe and lives and works in The Netherlands and in Italy.
Emma and I want to own one,each.....maybe one day....
It is by my friend Ellie.Her writing often moves me to tears and she has a profoundly beautiful way of expressing herself.Take a moment to view another Cape Town sister's words as she shares .....all the things i love .......http://allthethingsilove.blogspot.com/
I have a new rose in my garden,her name is Sharifa Asma. She is an Old English rose ,a David Austin rose. My herb garden has 4 beds and in the one closest to my kitchen steps ,I am going to have 5 Old Rose bushes.I have a lot to learn about roses ,and this year is my Year of Getting to know Roses! Sharifa is my first.I chose her as her scent is beyond heavenly.A deep ,fruity rosy perfume.She is also a beautiful pale pink blushing sort of rose.
When her blooms are full blown they are huge flouncy tutus .I have already had one full bloom.I think she will live up to her rather exotic name!
