On the Brink

Auction failed

This is my visual and emotional response to the green spaces in my village being invaded by development, as is presently happening on the Kommetjie Main Road. The patch of prickly pears is inspiration for my three dimensional painting, as it is in itself ‘on the brink’ and will possibly only remain as history. I painted this piece en plain air, standing at the edge of the cleared area, with the milkwood and prickly pear thicket before me, capturing the distinctive shape and prickly defence of the plants, that may have been here for a hundred years. Between me and the prickly pairs, the cleared sandy area bears the sign “No go area beyond fence”.
