My wife loves walking around on the mountains behind our home amongst the fynbos, proteas and the stunning view across an area known as Ruens. She also loves finding the almost hidden flowers that most other mortals would simply trample on, or walk past without even noticing. The plant itself would be a weed if you found it in your garden but here, in the veld, it adds to the singular beauty that surrounds us.
This acrylic painting is based on a photo she took one sunny morning.
It measures 25 cm x 20 cm and is a boxed canvas 3.5 cm deep.
