A family where the world is but a canvas to their imagination.

We pay a visit to an amazing family residing in Harrismith. 
The purpose of art is washing the dust 
of daily life off our souls.
Pablo Picasso
As shared by the hosts of De Oude Huize Yard

The first impressions. Beauty is the mystery of life.
It is not in the eye it is in the mind.
In our minds there is awareness of perfection.

Agnes Martin

Just want to stay right here.
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.

Jonathan Swift
Then this inviting area catch the eye.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Scott Adams
The bunny on the neatly cut pillar calls to explore.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Aristotle
The darling metal hens change the ordinary into extra special.
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.

James Whistler
The wonderful wide passage welcomes you when opening the front door.
The children do home schooling and the old church bench forms part of the library.
You will find 800 literature here. 
 
The Literature library 
Oliver busy doing a project.
Please note the holiday project. The old holiday essay of days gone by, bound in a
keepsake book. 
Total dedication and Shakespeare is smiling at you.
Art is Art.
Everything else is everything else.
Have you spotted Vivaldi, Handel and Bach.

Learning the Old Testament with the use of their art skills
Elijah taken to heaven; Hanna, Samuel and Eli; Joseph and his brothers.
Drawing is the honesty of the art
There is no possibility of cheating 

Salvador Dali 

Chlo√®'s room the story of the Mayflowers unfolds. Born in July when Winter is at its best.
The only flowers blooming in the garden was the Mayflower.
Every year a new bunch of Mayflowers is put in the vase and it stays for the year.
Happy young adulthood!

Adam's studio is filled with his artwork but also memorabilia of his parents. 
A picture is a poem without words 
Horace
A very special kitchen where family and friends meet.
Georgia, so cute standing in front 
A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind 
Eugene Ionesco 
Sophia's art studio is a special place to be.

  

Adam, Sophia, Chlo√®, Georgia and Oliver it's  a privilege to spend time with you.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, 
from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
Pablo Picasso

Hope that you will fall in love with this very special 
South African family as we did 
Lots of Love 
Sandra
