:: Gerty & Ivan's House, Melkhoutfontein, Western Cape, South Africa ::
:: Deep gratitude to fellow mural realiser Lleyton Steward ::

Over the Easter weekend, I had some time to spare, and Ivan directed me to create something small on his house as a way of making my mark on his property. Gerty & Ivan's house is like a second home to me, as they always make me feel completely welcome when I stay with them to work in Melkhoutfontein. So I thought I would create a kind of portrait of the family in my style dancing with swifts. From left to right are representations of Ivan, Gerty, Lleyton (with a karate black belt!), Lucretia, Gertwin and Llewellyn, along with their dog Tiger at the far end. As it was Easter, we had a bit of a party while painting the mural!
