Alf Gundersen

Our dear friend and Prince Albert neighbour Alf Gundersen has left us.

Alf painted in dry water brush the most perfect pictures of the Great Karoo - its spirit - and especially the traditional buildings and farms.

Three of his amazing art creations can be seen at Three Lily Buds in Sweden, one is the "Green Roof" chosen by us to carry the Karoo Virgin olive oil brand as well as Alf’s legacy into thousands of homes - now and in the future.

I remember Alf's comment when we bought our first Gundersen, the "Prince Albert Station": "Yeah - you got a good one!"

Thank You Alf for your great art - it was a pleasure to have known you.
