Short trip to Cape Town, South Africa

Hi all!! Just sitting relaxing and browsing around the web. Breathing the fresh air admiring colors of the sky through the window. Where I live, the environment is to a great extent unspoiled. That to me is a blessing that I embrace so proudly. I did observe the work of a few artist while I was at it and of course I would always share my findings with you guys.

While browsing I stumbled upon the work of an artist from Cape Town, South Africa. He only started his painting career recently any I must say, I am really impressed at his work. He is a painter who uses a variety of mediums but specializes in oil paintings and chalk pastels.
You should take a look at some of Mike Taljaard's work. Check it out here - Dynamic Art - . quite impressive.

Well I'm off to do some more searching and more reading up on the Group of Seven. See you around!!
