On My Easel – Anahita Golf Course 8th Hole – 16th January 2020

Art By Bruce - Anahita

This Work is a commission for a client in Saigon, Vietnam.

The Anahita Golf and Spa Resort is on the East Coast of Mauritius. It covers over 210 Hectares of Tropical coastline and includes two 18 hole golf courses designed by German Golfer Bernhard Langer and our very own Ernie Els.

Following my Anahita 4th which was sold in 2019 I received a commission from a buyer in Saigon, Vietnam. He has asked for an oil painting of the 8th hole looking towards the green from behind the tee.

I was also given a picture of where the finished piece will hang. A really special client.

The Cat and The Guinea Fowl

Art By Bruce - The Cat and The Guinea Fowl

Hidden in this Oil on Canvas Sheet you will find the cat and the guinea fowl.
The painting is on 265 gsm canvas measuring 228 mm x 305 mm or 9 in x 12 in.
Its fairly bright and will work in a confined space, in the loo or in a study.
Wherever it hangs it will elicit comment – probably something like
“I wonder what the artist was smoking”
“Perhaps the artist will tell us where he gets his good stuff”

On My Easel – Bull Elephant – 28th Sept 2019

Most artists I know can knock out a finished work in a few days. Some even in a day. I’m a little slower. In fact, I probably feature towards the end of the field. Start off like the hare and then get side tracked. What with writing for a car show in our suburb, grandchildren and sundry other distractions, I’m likely, most times, to finish behind the hare!

The car show was successful but is now a thing of the past so there is no excuse for not painting. Here’s an update on the Bull Elephant which I wrote about in February. He is slowly coming together and should be done in a week or so. Not the best image as it was taken with a mobile. My own camera fell and the case shattered. There are no spares available so I will have to fork out for a new one in the not too distant future.

Banksy rewound

My humble tribute to the master of thinking outside the box – OP465

If you have never seen the “Shredding Banksy Painting” then perhaps now is the time. It’s about 2 minutes long. So what is Banksy Rewound all about? It’s quite simple really. I think the man is a genius. Off the wall, or should that be “On the wall”? But nevertheless, a genius, and master of thinking outside the box.

Banksy is a mysterious character that paints the most amazing, funny, thought provoking and downright cheeky murals, but with a graffiti air about them. This particular painting, which is small compared to his other works, is big on shock, publicity grabbing, self promotion and dare I say it, making money.
Girl with a balloon was auctioned by Sothebys for a staggering $1, 400, 000 . On completion of the auction a shredder built into the picture frame was activated and the painting began to shred. It jammed three quarters of the way through, but that just added to the intrigue and romance of the entire process.

Seconds after the fall of the hammer “Girl with a balloon” began to shred. Right before the very people who had been bidding for the work.

So I imagined how Girl with a Balloon would look like if the painting could have been rewound into it’s frame. Here it is – “Banksy Rewound” – my tribute to the mystery man of thinking out the box.

Banksy Rewound is an Oil Painting on canvas, done with heart and soul and measures 305 x 406 mm or 12 x 16 inches.

There are some nice works in the pipeline, mine, not Banksy’s, that may interest you, “Tobias Toucan” “Bull Elephant” and “Jessica – Ceres Rail Company

If none of the above are your answer to “which one do you love?” then perhaps you have a favourite image or idea that you would like captured on canvas. If so contact me on and together we’ll turn the dream into reality.
