These are different kinds of South African proteas. I was a baby and taking a nap with my older sibling when my mom took the rare time of peace and quiet to paint this, she told me.  It’s an oil painting on canvas.

This is a pastel on paper drawing, hand drawn from an old photograph of my paternal grandfather.  (My mom is the artist).

Another oil on canvas painting, from a fishing village at Waenhuiskrans in South Africa.  My mom did this one in her fourth year as an art student in 1958.

I could finally unpack the paintings that I had shipped from South Africa that had arrived on Monday. One is a pastel drawing of my paternal grandfather, and the other two are oil paintings.
