Our July 2015 Trans-Karoo trip. -Paintings, part one.

It is about eight years since our last trip through our beloved karoo. So we took a short two day trip from, Colesburg to Hopetown, Prieska, Vanwyk’s Vlei, Canarvon and Loxton, where we spent the night. The next day we meandered home via Three Sisters, Murraysburg, Richmond, Middleburg and Steynsburg. The main purpose of the trip, was to find painting inspiration & to take a new batch of photos. It was a lovely trip, and these few are the first batch of paintings. More will follow in due course.

Love this old ruin, near Van Wyksvlei. It could make a perfect stage set.
