Sometimes you just have to surrender: / by Natasja De Wet

So I forgot to enter a painting for the Sanlam Portrait Awards in South Africa . . . but then again I have been told by a curator 10 years ago that I live in the wrong country, my work is too out of the box . . . the paintings I created/produced 15 years ago (the portraits) are in vogue at the moment in my country. I see similar work all over the show. .

I push boundaries, what can I say . . . story of my life.

 Oil on acrylic - more or less 15 years ago. Not a good quality photograph but the brushstroke and mark-making says it all.
