I recently had the pleasure of painting some oils for a newly bought house in Cape Town. The only brief was a king and queen protea in thick impasto oils- something I was only too please to go ahead with.
I also had the opportunity to get them custom framed at my favorite framer to suit the style of the house and existing artwork.
Here are the two paintings in the new home. The face each other across the main living area and are a celebration of natural environment the house is built within- a natural indigenous wetland in the South of the Cape Peninsula.
How do you like these pieces? Would you change anything about them if they went in your home, or would you want something completely different?
