ArtB Tiny Treasures 2022

By 30th Jul 2022Uncategorised

Tiny Treasures is an annual Arts Association of Bellville fundraiser exhibition. The size limit is 20 x 20 cm. This year I decided on a theme of tree shaded paths for the four oil paintings I submitted. The scenes are all places I walk in around Cape Town. Two of the works sold during the exhibition.

Cecilia Forest Path

I chose the subject of this painting for the dramatic shadows the huge gum trees cast on the path by the huge gum trees growing in this part of the Cecilia Forest.

Path in Deer Park

This spot is a delight, and I loved the pattern the shadows made on the path. Deer Park is an area below the front of Table Mountain.

Path near Kirstenbosch Drive

This spot is a wooded area below the stone cottages on Kirstenbosch Drive. It was the site of Protea Village, which was demolished in terms of the infamous group areas act, and the people who lived there moved elsewhere. Something I found very poignant here was an old pear tree which still stands in the wood, blossoming and producing pears. Happily the land claim was finally acknowledged and some of the Protea Village families will return here soon. For more information on this read this article:

Tokai Path

This is a path in the Lower Tokai Park. It’s a delightful place to walk as one always sees something new, depending on the season. It was once a pine plantation, but fynbos now flourishes in a large part of the park.

Last year I chose mountain paths as my theme, see
