Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

A breather in spring.

I have been taking a long break. I’m doing things I have been neglecting for some time, I’m enjoying spring and everything that goes along with it. I have been waiting a long time for summer to show up and now that it is here, I have to make every minute count, for it passes quickly. I’m basking in the fruits of the season. I have had an attack of fatigue and I am paying attention to my health. And I’m playing around on Myfrenchkitchen, which I’ve allowed to slip from me over the last few months. I’m stopping by here at Africantapestry just for a quick breather before I continue on my road of indulgence. And pretty soon I’ll be back here with full gusto.

Enjoy the season!

  5. I love that mango, Ronell. I can feel its warm, sweet flesh in my hand and imagine it dribbling down my arm. Watercolour doesn’t get much more satisifying than this.

    Take it easy and squeeze all the juice you can out of the season – it is far too short, isn’t it.

  15. I hope you enjoy your break, fully deserved. And I’ll be taking a peak at your FrenchKitchen, I’m acually looking for recipes with a lot of vegetables (the season is coming) and who knows I’ll find something there!

  16. Although today feels like winter at it’s coldest (very strange climate here now), the mangos remind me of summer and the rich juicy syrup of a mango dribbling down my chin. I hopped over to your food blog and gained 5 pounds!!!
