ANDREW MUNNIK’S FINE PAINTING OF ‘THE MARMALADE CAT’ COFFEE SHOP IN DARLING – IT REALLY DOES LOOK JUST LIKE THIS ON A HOT SUMMER’S DAY!
 

THE CHURCH/ STUDIO IN DARLING
 

Yesterday, Sunday, to escape the city frenzy we took a drive out to Darling, a country village about an hour’s drive outside Cape Town. No sign of flags or soccer here..great breakfast at The Marmalade Cat. Then on to visit Andrew Munnik, an eccentric, somewhat reclusive artist who lives in an old church in Darling. Andrew has a cell phone, but other than that is not adherent of modern technology. No website, no email, no computer. He works frenetically rising daily before sunrise to start painting. Some of his work is very conceptual, meditative..and then he also paints exquisite and poetic scenes from the village and the surrounding countryside. Visitors may seek him out at his studio…
