holiday inspiration

below are a few posts dedicated to a fraction of what kept me going and inspired me into the new year.
ive been busy with some new works, will be uploading them in the next few days...


this is the view from the stairs down toward the beach by our house up the west coast at yzerfontein.

nature time

found a beautiful old illustrated field guide to rare and endangered flora of the western cape.
picked up some leaves and bits. beautiful colors.
and collected some seeds for the garden. these are ornamental poppy seeds.

family archives

found some great old packaging and boxes of eight-track tapes.
and some great old matchboxes.
and some miniature vintage playing cards.

family history

my great grandma was from germany, she fled the war.she made skirts.
here is a beautiful pic of my great grandmother with my grandfather, grandmother, her sister and her husband.
a very old english-german dictionary with beautiful type.

sketchbook scripture

some awesome powerful words from the Bible

1960's & 70's readers digests

i also make a habit of collecting all my grandpa's old readers digest magazines from the 60's and 70's. he has a comprehensive collection of them at our summer house in yzerfontein(up the west coast)
some great illustrations and coca-cola advertisements

shoreline treasures

i spent some time picking up interesting things along the west coast.
so many great color combinations in nature. we serve a big and ceaetive God, praises!
found so many washed up crabs, beautiful color tones of orange and cream.
found stacks of driftwood for an upcoming project(think this piece may once have been used for fishing line)

long bicycle rides

i spent many lonely&quiet early mornings and late evenings out doing training rides with my road bike out into the countryside on roads that stretch on forever without a car in sight.
