Autumn Colours

Although currently Spring in New Zealand I want to share with you this gorgeous Autumn watercolour painting that I viewed on my birthday visit to the 2019 Arts Gold Finalists Exhibition at Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery, Alexandra, Central Otago.

The butterflies in the painting appear to be Red Admiral butterflies. Nigel took the following butterfly photos at Larnach Castle garden, Otago Peninsula. August 27, 2017



Dorothy Piper won an Award for her beautiful watercolour art.


Blog Recommendation – the real NZ!

Got a few minutes to see a beautiful blog-post about a southern NZ poet’s visit to Glenorchy? – one of the most gorgeous locations in the world IMHO – Kay McKenzie Cooke was up there last week …

Stunning location, fascinating photos   At The End Of The Road
