Our Photo Hanger – The first from the Functioning Art Collection

I have a dream (well I actually have too many to count or write about) to make art that is functional. I have made many digital sketches and plan to try and create them to sell….one day…. and they will make me a millionaire (in Pounds – Sterling)….. and then I will be able to change the world 🙂

So here is the first creation which is the most simple, this was in fact Laurens idea. It consists of two canvases 2.5m X 0.3m connected to each other by plastic covered braided wire. The Photos are attached to the wire with Large paperclips.

Trip to Cape Town Planning well under way

December is fast approaching and it is now only 19 days untill our holiday to Cape Town begins, the planning has been intense as Lauren and I want to do as much as possible in the Mother City and be as touristy as possible. So far the plan is to leave EL on the 15th and travel through to Uniondale where we will be staying at Seven at Grey, we wont be taking bicycles though, even though we could.

A luxury free standing cottage situated in a big garden in a quiet street off the main road.  The cottage is fully restored and tastefully decorated in a French provincial style. Cyclists are welcome.

From there we will be traveling to De Rust and through the Meiringspoort pass to Klaarstroom. From Klaarstroom the road should wind up to Prince Albert and then through the Swartberg Pass and down into Calitzdorp – All roads leading to Calitzdorp are downhill, hopefully it wont be an uphill battle to get out of this port wine capital of South Africa, I think we will definitely have to use the spittoon.

From Calitzdorp the road we will be following will take us through Ladismith, Barrydale, Swellendam, Riviersonderend, Caledon, Bot River, Grabouw, and Somerset West with us ending up in the Mother City where we will be staying with our Awesome Friends, James and Michelle and the jovial Adlard troop. As can be seen the travelling research has some way to go and so if anyone has any tips of places to see along the way please let me know so that we can add this onto the list.

So Far whilst in Cape Town we will be visiting the following places and doing the following things:

Red City Tour

Franschoek & Stellenbosch, JC Le `roux

Planatrium @8

Chapmans, houtbay, boulders beach, simonstown, fish-hoek, Kalkbay


Kirstenbosch & Table Mountain, Sea Point,  Camps Bay

Rhodes Memorial,  Robben Island & Aquarium

Phantom of the  Oprah

Darling to Langebaan to stay over at crystal lagoon lodge

Cape Point Paarl,Wellington, tulbagh, Swatland

what can you recommend, we have a few lines open?
