Donna has had a love affair with wind pumps and reservoirs of the Karoo for many years, feeling that they give one a sense of life in an otherwise barren and hostile landscape. This stormy scene is very typical of the late afternoon clouds that can gather in the Karoo, bringing well deserved rain to the dry land.

About the Karoo

The Karoo is a semi-desert  of South Africa. The Karoo is partly defined by its landscape, geology, and climate — above all, its low rainfall, arid air, cloudless skies, and extremes of heat and cold. The Karoo also hosted a well-preserved eco-system which is now represented by many fossils.

The Karoo formed an almost solid barrier to the interior from Cape Town, and the early explorers and hunters on the way to the Highveld  denounced it as a fearsome place of great heat, great frosts, great floods and great droughts. Today it is still a place of great heat and frosts, and an yearly rainfall of between 50–250 mm, though on some of the mountains it can be 250–500 mm higher than on the plains. However, underground water is found throughout the Karoo, which can be tapped by boreholes, making sheep farming possible.

About Prints on Canvas

Many of Donna’s artworks are offered as fine art digital prints, which have been skilfully photographed and printed on large format inkjet printers. These prints are limited edition and numbered bottom left and signed bottom right. They are printed on the highest quality canvasses. The printing process has employed fade resistant, HP Vivera archival inks, which boast a 100+ year fade-proof promise.

These artist prints are offered in varying sizes. Also the prints on canvas can be provided stretched over a wooden frame or rolled in a core for easy shipping. Lastly, each canvas print is treated with a high quality scratch resistant matt art sealant.
