'Girl with tears in her eyes'      Oil on canvas      1978



'In the looking glass'      Oil on canvas      1978

This is from a picture, of what appeared to be a biblical scene (sun-beams and dust), I saw on the mirror
in the bedroom whilst lying in bed one Sunday morning.  It was somewhat like watching clouds -
but the picture didn't change. However, I was reluctant to move, lest I lost it.

But, after a couple of hours, I decided to fetch pencil and paper and made a rough sketch.
The result was this picture - the glass depicting the mirror.

I used the same subject matter for 'Madonna in the looking glass' a Christmas Story and for
a stone lithograph.

'Childhood Memories'      Oil on canvas       1980

This depicts my traumatic voyage from St. Helena to Capetown.

Capricorn, that's me, with the worm I vomited whilst seasick for six days, the fish that ate the worm
- so it was the worm that died and not me -
and  'the albatross' the bird that ate the fish that swallowed the worm and followed the ship to 
guide us safely to our destination.
