This blog details news and events from my two major passions, art and white water kayaking. I may include posts about my other active interests including tramping, rock-climbing, tennis, exploring, snorkelling, house renovation, entrepreneurial ideas and various other hybrid activities. I welcome comments and look forward to receiving your feedback.


Waikaremoana 15: Only the sky to go!

It's been slow progress lately - I have been working on our house instead! Anyway, I have completed everything bar the sky, which shouldn't take long.


Waikaremoana 14: Right foreground completed


Next I will work on the left foreground.


The Big Paint - Wanganui

On 17 Sept, I visited Wanganui to participate in 'The Big Paint', a painting event conceived and organised by Felicity Priest as part of The Real Whanganui Festival. Francis Sim-Higgins and John Singleton were co-organisers. 100 artists came to Majestic Square, each to paint a designated section of a beautiful time-lapse photograph of the Sarjeant Gallery with Mt Ruapehu behind, taken by Leigh Mitchell-Anyon. At the end of the day, the 'jigsaw' was assembled on the Wall of the Memorial Hall to create a huge and quite amazing painting 7.5 x 5 metres large. See the link below for images:

My section of the artwork is immediately right of the front door of the Gallery. The event was a great idea and rewarding to be a part of.


Waikaremoana 13: Working on right foreground

I have completed the cliffs on the right and am starting the flax bush, bottom right.


Waikaremoana 12: Working on foreground

I am just working on the cliffs on the right of the frame.


Waikaremoana 11: Clouds completed

I have completed the clouds and made a start on the dark foreground. I have also significantly lightened the shining reflection on the lake and changed the grid in the right foreground.

I will continue to work on the dark greens in the foreground.
