"Spring Morning" by South African Impressionist Marie Theron

Since I stepped away from the rabbits and stitch cartoons with their formality, I have been leaning towards Impressionism more and more. I am quite settled in the tropical town of Durban. As I found long ago when I lived here, I am almost invigorated by the heat and humidity. Suddenly my palette bursts with colour and vibrance.

To do the particular background effect, I cut shapes from the skins of dry paint which I peeled from my palette. This gave my one grand daughter much joy, because I was "recycling" paint!

"Moment" by South African Impressionist Marie Theron

Although I admire simplicity in art, and those cool detached figures, I find that as soon as I start planning a new painting, a strong narrative comes through. Here, in a sunny garden with a glimpse of the ocean, a boy and his Mom has a sweet moment together.

New Figurative Work by South African Impressionist Marie Theron


I have rediscovered my love for figurative art, and I do think that the stitch cartoons was only a stepping stone for me. They are fun and I still do them on request. I spend a lot of time on each painting to get the exact mood. I hope you like them! Here are 4 paintings that I have done recently, with links to buying or viewing or for looking at my CV.

A Special Stitch Cartoon for an Artist

This was such a fun assignment. I usually draw directly onto my canvas, but then I received the list of animals (and a parrot) to be included in this commissioned biographical stitch cartoon, plus the artist's favourite outfits and symbols and colours! I just had to make a few drawings first. The artist is Valencia van Zyl. Her amazing style is something that I cannot even imitate (some have tried, but it lacks her special quality). The outcome of this painting was that both she and I were happy with it in the end.




Here are a few more of my stitch cartoons:










The warm colours, the pets, the cosy dark sofas and curtains, all create a sense of welcome and homeliness. The scenes are "stitched" together, stitches  being a symbol of domesticity. The ladies are faceless to emphasize the body language. There is a feeling of patience and anticipation in the waiting figures.

There is a calendar available with 12 of the best stitch cartoons.
