Overberg artist Lynda de Wet

Living close to the Kogelberg biosphere one is surrounded by the amazing variety of what one calls Fynbos. It is inspiring and one is never short of subjects. I paint for passion and I seldom have no work in progress. Often I will come across something special and I totally fall in love with it.  It just must be painted and everything else is shelved – the flower or plant rules! I was extremely excited about the woody Iridaceae and set about locating and painting the Klattias and Witsenia and being endemic to the area made them extra special.
