Emblems of the Heart

Medium : Oil on canvas
Size: 48*90 inches
Description: This is a large commission painting which I created for a lovely couple who were married at the Mahu Whenua Lodge near Wanaka. It was painted using a pallet knife. The work shows the view from the front lawn of the lodge and was the view that the couple looked out upon when they were married. I titled the work "Emblems of the Heart", a phrase taken from James K Baxter's "Poem in the Matukituki". It seemed so appropriate.

Purple Mountain

Medium : Oil on wooden panel
Size: 30 * 48 inches
Description: one of my favourite places in Arthur's Pass National Park.

Along the Lindis

Medium: Oil on canvas
Size: 30*48 inches
Description: The landscape of the Lindis is full of contrast, the light, the tussock and the shadows are constantly changing.
