3. Sky, Clouds and Waves by Roslyn Hancock
Acrylic 30 x 40
 
We chose this for our March image of Calendar Art Originals, with the wild clouds rushing from the sea manifesting the old saying heralding Spring: in like a lion, out like a lamb.

This was painted especially for February, Calendar Art Originals 2018. It is reminiscent of the walks we took up on the Wasash behind our house in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Our dogs would join us, and even our Siamese came along in the fair-weather months. We could take walks at the drop of a hat, as our property was the last house on the cut-de-sac backing to the slopes of the Wasash, the foothills of the Rockies! Our dogs would have the grandest fun barking mightily at hang-gliders as they floated down to land in the field next to us, and the moment they touched the ground, our dogs would stop their excitement, and calmly walk away, back to us wagging their tails, their job done.

Biography
BORN: Germiston, South Africa
BA English and Art, Rhodes University, SA
Emigrated to USA: 1993
 
In one form or another, I have involved myself in art all my life, - but painting has been the constant.
I was born and raised in South Africa by parents who encouraged any talents they saw in their children. For me this included riding, tennis, swimmimg, ballet, and also art at the local Technical College on Saturday mornings, -  memorable mostly for being in a freezing building. 
 
Today, my paintings often result from a nostalgic emotion. I love the glory of startlingly beautiful garden flowers like my mother grew and I grow now: the sea and waves and rocks with spray. How wonderful the summer holidays were! I spent many hours roaming the neighbourhood or strolling along the beach, - it was fairly safe for a child alone in those days . . . And other times I happily cooped myself in my room with a sketch book, vase of white daisies, or seagull’s wing found on the beach, and water colours. 
 
It was lucky I liked my own company, as my brother and sister were too young to be companions. I was a thoughtful serious child, and had long conversations with myself, sorting out my problems. With my thoughts and art I felt I could control my own world.
 
My first professional appointment was teaching art to the girls at Springfield Convent, K to 12. I was newly married and fresh out of university, armed with a BA in Art and English and teaching diploma. In the early years of our married life, Rob and I often painted plein air together in oils. Then our children came, and I became a stay-at-home-mom until both boys were at school, when I started garden designing and consulting, - a wonderful outlet for my artistic needs, as I was working with [...]
