Miniature landscapes in a small garden 4

We only have a small garden plus a lawn with a border for our dog. The succulent garden (4 patches) measures about 80 square meters and is home to around 600 different registered species. Some of the plants are naturally multiplying (always a healthy sign for a garden)  and of some we take cuttings which we plant nearby the parent plant. In total, wild guess;  probably around 1000-1100 plants of this surface. Within the garden we try to create miniature landscapes sometimes hidden between rocks or bigger plants and sometimes part of a bigger patch with more spheres. Why not share a selection of 8 different ones?

Imaginary in the making

What you see here is the beginning and a small part of a new imaginary in which shades and the real objects/persons flow into a surreal landscape. This time I’ve got a clear picture in mind; no ‘play’ with objects but focussed on the end result. Still have to make some pictures with my favorite model and some objects under the right (natural) light conditions. But the concept is there. Once I’ve finished this one and others using the same concept I hope to exhibit the imaginaries somewhere in an art gallery. Anyone interested?

Experiment with shades 4: My Toes

Shades are a reflection in a way. Just a mini-serie of 4. See for yourself.

This last chapter is dedicated to the Toemailers Angela & Quillan who show us toes from around the globe including my wife’s and mine. Here is another one of my toes, shade included!

Rock Art from Sam

The Indonesian born artist Sam Siyahaya, nowadays living in Holland, painted this rock for us during his stay with us sometime ago. We named it Sammy and Sammy is cool.. People who are acquainted with the Klaas Voogds area near Robertson (our previous place) will recognize the Langeberg Mountains in that part of the Western Cape.
