Striated Skies No. 16 – Tree lined Canal

Striated Skies No 15 - Tree Lined Canal

There is something about a row of trees that is beautiful. Possibly the structure of the row of trees vs. the organic shape of the trees. What ever it is this striated sky depicts a row of trees along a dusty path at Babylonstoren. The piece is modified depicting the dusty path as a canal coloured “water way”.

This piece reminds me of how as humans we have the ability to create structured environments that are functional and beautiful. I feel that this garden is what all South Africans should be allowed to experience in their own backyards. This is opposed to the current trend of cramming people into developments and housing projects that reduce garden space in order to maximise profits and living space but remove peoples ability to have a green garden space.

The beautiful and enchanting gardens of Babylonsoren are a gem to visit and this is the second striated skies piece that is based at the venue. I would most definitely recommend a visit.

Striated Skies so far…

2015 is rushing along like years seem to do these days and so far I have published 12 striated skies out of the 52 for the year. I am thoroughly enjoying this project and hope that you are too. Let me know what has been your favourite so far.

Tomorrow I will publish number 13 titled  “Creeping Condensation”.

Striated Skies No. 7 – Covered by Cucurbita

7. Covered by Cucurbita

The Photo for Covered by Cucurbita was taken at Babylonstoren on a wonderful Saturday afternoon. The farm is a great outing and would be on my must visit list if you are in the Cape. The large garden has lots to look at and the tea garden offers a great place to relax for a bite to eat. The Cucurbita covered tunnel is one of the interesting flora ‘attractions’ with its numerous different species hanging from the tunnel frame.
