"Time to reflect" by Santie Cronje is an original painting created in 2010 and part of our Birthday show, available for sale for the first time in over ten years.
“A time to reflect” is a moment to ponder. A personal journey of discovery and of making peace. Learning from the past and looking forward to the future. The continuation of life and all that it holds. Generally the persimmon symbolises transformation. Personally in this picture, the persimmon symbolises the continuation of personal growth. Always striving to better ourselves".
