The Surprise. SOLD

Sunshine on her skin and
The sun in her heart
She set off for an adventure
what a pleasure
Her eyes were set on Greece
To a friend who expect it at the least
Secrecy and plans were sworn
From day to dawn
Then the moment of surprise
No tear was in disguise
Hugs and joy were contagious for the days on the go.
Memories were shared
Laughter about what we dared.
The years in between filled up
And new plans for future brewed up.
Good surprises are so great!!

A Letter to London

£95
Dear London
You are beautiful but that you know
Maybe you don’t know that
You are like a candle, drawing every moth to your light
For some
Your light is a light of hope and dreams
for some it ends up in nightmares and screams
For the wise ....
who treat cautiously
you are a honey pot
Sweet and soft
A heaven to adopt
London who are you really?
Good or bad?
Daunting or sad?
All said
I love you London
For me
You are exciting, full of surprises, culture and pom.
May you keep it
All along!

The Love Birds are free
The love birds are all around us we just need to allow them to get into our heads.
These love birds are having fun and the girl have to smile. She feels great in her white dress that folds gentle and soft around her young body. How she loves to swing around in this dress with flowers in her hair. Silly with joy in her heart and a song on her lips.
The man watched her and turned away - silly girl but then he could not help to smile. The woman in the painting caught on and for fun she turned around right in front of the girl and the love birds.
I feel today to invite the love birds in and dress in a soft dress that I can twirl and swirl until I look like a fluffy ice cream cone.
Silly girl and the love birds!

The view
#acrylic #square #suzette.datema.com

Privilege am I said the guy
Who lives with a view he can’t buy
A view that delivers a colourful display without pay
A jolly delivery day by day
A gift better than a toy to play
Nature has no preconcepts or grudges
Also do no works on budgets
It just gives it all
And you can’t get it from a mall
So here it is
Get a view to please
And fill your soul with a brand new goal.

Willing Hands
Do we ever give a thought to these willing hands that gather the coffee beans with love, so that we can have coffee with manicure hands in a Coffee Shop? This is an illustration of those willing hands, rough, un-manicured, broken nails and dirty, but hands that are eager to share the coffee beans with us. Reaping it day by day and placing it in simple baskets. The beginning of the coffee bean journey starts here.

Life in Montmatre
Oil painting - very large unframed
49" x 54"
Dreams are ten a penny so we wish for so many.
On the plane artists are looking for a gain
Maybe today someone would see the talent
Of a master so brilliant
Giggling girls grabbed the imagination of an amateur
And they posed for the monsieur
With great grandeur
How we wish for a life in Montmatre
Drinking coffee and having a tart
Like Grumps are he would leave a secret fart
And Nan …. like nans are. Shakes her head,
All seems so free
with pen and paper, paint or brush everyone so lush
Maybe …LIFE in Montmatre a dream too much.

The Red Dress.
Acrylic on canvas.

THE RED DRESS

There is a folk song saying
‘Here I am again with my red dress in front of your door.’
From where this folklore?

Why a red dress ?
Here is my guess
Red, bold and bright
Makes you stand for your right

Red … mmm sexy
A red dress like a glove
And its bearer subtle as a dove
Who cannot go in a frenzy?

Red, how daring and overbearing
Walk in a room and everyone will be staring.

This girl is making a grandeur entrance
And know her excellence
Tonight is her night
And her future feels bright

Go girl go
Your red dress makes you glow.

Unframed but borders more than 3" on all sides so easy to have it framed. Varnished to protect the paint and colours
Thanks for viewing.

The day's job
#acrylic, #square, #canvas, #framed, #colourful, #forsale
Did you know the day has a job?
Days are very busy
A day need to know how to mix
light, wind, rain and snow
and put up a show
A show of light
and dark
and keep you happy as a lark.
But some days it gets it all wrong
and a day can then seem so long.
But if you are happy and content
in your heart
A wrong day can't end up in your cart

DETERMINATION
That morning I woke up and forgot it is your birthday
I didn’t want to think it is your birthday because I knew it would be your last birthday with us in this life.
You looked at me and your eyes were hurting. You forgot: ‘she said’… in a soft voice.
I made a joke to hide my true feelings and said ‘happy birthday’ but I didn’t mean it, because I could not think how to make it a happy day.
It is now already years ago and I still regret that we didn’t celebrate that day.
That I was just thinking of my pain that she will be gone soon.
I am determined to change that one day.
In heaven we will again celebrate that 84th birthday
We are going to dance and sing and tell stories
Hugs and kisses
And a painting I will make you
And all will be glorious.
Love you still so much!

The Seagulls Conversation

“Why are you just standing there?
Well why not?
Because this is my rock.
I see no name on it.
But it is my rock!
Now what are you going to do about it?
Mmm ... I might just fly over your head and drop some nasties.

Do you know your are a bully?

Says who?

Says I.
It is a pity you don’t want to be my friend, as I caught a fish today and wanted to share it with you. I think I should reconsider.

In a sweet voice— you know I was just joking of course......

You said you have a fish to share ....?”

The Night visitor

The very romantic guy, cheeky face man, planned to surprise his very prim and proper girlfriend at her open window
Her Mum and dad would not approve,
but this makes the venture an even exciting move
So a ladder was his solution
For this very adventurous execution
With a giggle in his heart
He climb the ladder with a dart.
Tonight is the night that he is going to do the proposal
To a very beautiful ‘gall’. His gall.
Cat looked at it all in surprise
and the happy lad, to his demise
His lady miss find this visit a wonderfully orchestrated debacle.
‘Despicable’ thinks cat
I will cling on my miss as long as I can. I will solve this pickle!

Follow the Path (Commision)

A new route
A new destiny
A new legacy
A new beginning
Walking in an unknown forest
Following the sketchy foot path
A destiny unknown
Trusting the other side would be ok
Trees are preparing for a time of rest, following the evolution of life.
A time for autumn
A time for winter
A time for spring
A time for summer
May the walk of life be like the forest - ever changing with satisfaction and joy in each season.

A Starry Starry London

Mum and Dad you know I live in London..
and maybe you are watching me from above.

You know I am happy but ...
Can you believe that I was born in a small town on another continent and now I live here?

Some days I have to pinch myself and say to myself it is really true.

Then I think of The Duchess of Sussex her face when she walked into the church was saying: ‘Is this real? ‘ Is this really happening to me?’ ‘How can it be that a prince is waiting to marry me?’

I do not have a wordly prince but to me he is my prince. My best friend my sweetheart and he brought us to London so many years ago.

Together we explore.
Together we work and play
Together we plan and dream.
And together we hold each together

So why not imagine and dream of a Van Gogh starry starry night in London

TREASURES

FRIENDS ARE PRECIOUS

I showed this painting to one of my friends close by and she said, “I can see love in their eyes” . . . and I thought to myself . . . That is exactly why I love them all to bits.
Some of these friends are far away, scattered over the earth.

Ansi is my Canadian friend, the serious one. The people whisperer. She believed in me far more than I believed in myself and made me realise who I am. The ugly duckling that belonged with the swans. Ansi is like a soft breeze and sweet smell.
When she whispers with her soft voice in your ear, magic happens and you can move a mountain in the blink of an eye. I love the hours with Ansi that we can just talk and talk and talk . . .

Zuretha and I have a long history, so long that I feel like Methusalah. The day I met her was my lucky day! Everyone always thought we were sisters, and when we crossed a street you would just see teeth and blue eyes. We don’t have to talk every day and when we do, we just carry on where we left off. Zuretha and I can laugh and talk and be silly - especially when we go down memory lane.

My dear friend Nadine, she has the style of a queen. With bead-like blue eyes, a cute little nose and rosebud lips she keeps a serious pose. No one’s eyes can ever ask questions and speak like her eyes can do. Eyes like a hawk, they don’t miss a move. We would be in the same room and Nadine you would look around, talk with your eyes and off we go in a giggle without one spoken word. A strong lady that knows what she wants and a special friend indeed. I would be so much poorer without you in my life.

Then there is Alta. The soft and gentle friend. Alta was the most wanted neighbour ever and she was a great found in 1994. We so often popped in just for a chat. Our highlights were our late afternoon walks, when we did our head-filing. Oh dear! That was censored! But on our return our priorities were perfectly straightened out. Also, Alta I remember your birthdays that were something no one wanted to miss. The table laid with every South African cake or tart to die for. How I still long for those days!!

Lizan, my friend in Taiwan. I cannot believe that we are friends already for 38 long years! You’ve always amazed me with how you could pack up job and flat, fill your car with your possessions - that which didn’t fit weren’t important, and off you go. You have more courage than I can imagine. You just do what you have to do and stay positive all the way! We can talk for England once we start and cover topics from here to Africa, Asia and all the world.

I wish I had a canvas as big as a house to paint all my friends, but for now everyone is engraved in my heart
and a precious treasure I want to guard.
