The painting has a very peaceful and serene feel to it. It is as if the viewer is standing in the middle of the field, surrounded by the beauty of nature. The white house provides a focal point for the painting, but it does not overpower the other elements. The flowers and mountains are equally important, and they all work together to create a harmonious and balanced composition.

The artist, Thea Darlow, is a South African artist who is inspired by landscapes, trees, and rural African scenes. She draws inspiration from photographs, memories, and sketches to create her paintings. The ancient Matobo Hills hold a special place in her heart, evoking the divine and the feminine.

Darlow's artistic journey began in Gwanda, Zimbabwe, where her childhood on a farm was colored by creativity. Guided by her mother, Joan, a renowned watercolor artist, Thea developed a deep love for painting. Her evolving expressionist style blends mediums and explores the spectrum of color.

Under the mentorship of respected South African artist Laura Wenman, Darlow honed her artistic fundamentals, focusing on drawing, observation, and perspective. She then mastered oil painting and expanded her skills through workshops with Ryno Swart and Jenny Merritt, exploring large expressionist and abstract works enriched with acrylic paint.

Darlow's work finds homes in galleries and commissioned projects, with endless inspiration drawn from the captivating Table Mountain view, the surrounding landscapes, and the picturesque Winelands under the South African blue skies.
