Art Gallery Opened Today!

I was moved to be there today. Five years post earthquake. I missed it, but I didn’t realise how much I missed it. I have been a regular visitor since 1967, and so there were familiar works, and I loved immersing myself into the textures.

Art Gallery Opened Today!


Max Gimblett. This was an item in his classic clover shape. I just liked being close up.


Close up of a McCahon.


I can see the Harley building where I used to work, fate still unknown.


Petrus van der Velden – amazing image of Otaro river.


E. Mervyn Taylor, I recall his woodcuts in the School Magazine.


Close up of a Rita Angus watercolour. How does do that bleeding?


Sketching again! Flower Power.

Its been a while, and I won’t have many as I’m working on some serious writing projects, but have loved doing these as I am more rested over the holiday period.

I’m on a roll here… they could be a series.  The aim is to make flowers, not… I know… flower power.
