The Private Gallery in Napier, South Africa, opens soon.
Me and my wife have decided to open a Private Gallery. As soon as her studio is ready (yes we are building) the present studio will be converted in a small gallery which is only open on appointment. If all goes well we should be ready at the end of February. We live along the main touristic route between Cape Town and the Southernmost Tip of the African Continent in Cape Agulhas. Daily tour buses are passing by and for the right people who value originality the Private Gallery is an ideal stop over to buy a gift (either jewellery reflecting the treasures of the South African earth or landscape pictures of this region). In the meantime some tourist organisations and South African based tour guides have expressed their interests; some of them already visited with groups Yvonne’s present studio last year.

A week ago I published some pictures of a jazz concert on the blog of one of my clients. I only gave myself 90 minutes to select 12 pictures and process plus publish them on the different social media. It took 93 minutes and the blog post alone got within 2 days more than 600 hits according to WordPress statistics; several tweets plus over 120 shares on Facebook. Not too shabby for a new blog (first post end of January).
Anyway I redid one of the pictures; the one of the South African Lady of Jazz: Janet Marshall.
