The atmospheric beauty and illuminating landscapes are 'memory jewels' of places I have been, places I rode my horse in past years and places I have lived.
This particular painting is referencing the amazing time we had down South last school holidays - so much amazing beauty - ice cold milky glacial waters and low slung rich glowing horizons.
The South always fills me with awe.
They all come out in a painting like this, an immense amount of reverence and respect for the land, the sea and the skies we get to call our own here in New Zealand - the taonga and the treasure of this land.
The land-form glowing with gold-leaf differently in whatever way you approach the artwork. The many layers in the water and sky allows a different reading of the painting with different times of the day casting changing light.
