A blast from the past!

In looking at the pictures under 'images' for Pierneef a couple stuck out that reminded me of a piece I have in the back of my cupboard.

The medium used is dyed tissue paper glued onto a board, paint added and then sealed with a water based varnish. This is the result from a workshop I did many years ago called 'Mark Making' run by Sue Physick, a local textile artist.  It was 2 days a month over nearly 6 months and took me to places I had never been before and also boosted my confidence into making 'marks' on my cloth in ways I would never of dreamt of. Hence this piece takes me back and reminds me of where I have been and come from. It does one good to look back every now and again !!


  1. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous piece, Phil. What are the dimensions?

  2. Well, who's a lucky bunny ? Not only are you in SA but with some insight already. Will this challenge make use of some of those things you learnt and discovered on that course, I wonder. Yes, it is good to look back and see how far we have come. Hilary
