Amber Melancholia is a gestural interpretation of a lily pond in the gardens of a property called 'Uitkyk", Nieu Bethesda. In the amber colour of the water and Acacia Tree is reflected from above, and floating upon the waters are lily pads/Nymphaea. I refer to a mild dose of melancholia in the title, amber being "medium". It is often the mood I am in when surrounded by water and the quiet contemplation of nature.
