From My Sketchbook – 28

A small farm house in the Northern Cape. I did it with pen and water colour.



About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  1. Dear Don, Beautiful art. Thank you.


  2. Looks historic – when I see such homes, I wonder about the people who lived there. Beautifully captured, Don. 🙂

    There’s a bright jauntiness to this old building. A reflection of the artist … or the stories it holds !?!
    Love it!

  8. It could be a home in Texas or South Carolina or anywhere – and I would love it all the same. Just beautiful, Don.


  9. When I drive the blue highways of Kansas, especially in the fall when the vines and trees are turning color, there are many little former-farmhouses out in the fields, often with cattle roaming around. I love this picture.

      Must be a wonderful scene Marylin. I been in the US during fall and saw some of the most beautiful scenes of colour I’ve ever seen. There’s one scene in Tennessee I have never forgotten. I can close my eyes and see it. 🙂
