WORK IN PROGRESS / by Natasja De Wet

I have been doing a lot of soul searching for a commission I received for a portrait. It has been challenging to work with a concept that my 'inner' Self has been longing for but have not explored yet and I have never had to delve so deeply to say the least. My 'abstract' evocative way of painting can't be tamed with a 'theme' and the expressionist colourist in my being has been throwing little teensy tantrums. But it has been truly rewarding to say the least.
