    "It is going well with us: good rains, placid days, autumn tints, nice to paint in the open air. Even a retired painter is stung into action when the Cape rain starts falling and the autumn tints and striking skies make an appearance. Such a pity that I have only two hands and that time slips by so quickly." (the artist as quoted in Bekker, 1990, p.90)
