My blog has been rather quiet for a while because I went away to visit my daughter in the lovely little town of St Francis Bay. Most of the homes are only used during peak holiday seasons when the owners come down from Johannesburg and Pretoria to enjoy some quiet time at the sea. The break was meant to be a time for me to do some serious painting, but the weather turned very cold and the first three days were very unpleasant with the cold, wind and rain making it difficult to do any painting outdoors. This did not stop me from taking plenty of photos to work from later.
When the weather calmed down and warmed up again, I got to do a few paintings. This little one was done from the stoep of the house I was staying at. From certain angles one could even see the waves breaking just beyond the houses.
St Francis Bay has a lovely little stretch of beach where one will find people walking their dogs, or a few people coming to paddle out on their surf skis or canoes.
