We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

So, I came up with something else close to my heart :
Just like the miner that I used in my Egoli-quilt, this Khoi-lady has been sitting at my side for a long time. She has got such a look of patience and something timeless about her. Here is a detail:
