bellbird 1000copyright11032019What a summer we have had....and now it feels like Autumn is upon us!  With all this beautiful weather we have had i did find it hard to remain in the studio,  the Bays were calling most afternoons for a swim in the Sea.  With such hot temperatures, the paint was drying before it reached the canvas!

What an exciting few months to come.  In April i will be exhibiting at The 35th Arrowtown Autumn Festival Exhibition, which runs from April 26th- May 26th 2019. I will have two works for the show and hope to get there for opening night  myself.

In May The Otago Art Society is holding the ever popular Cleveland National Awards, a biennial Exhibition,  which  neverdisappoints..  Opening may 4th - June 15th 2019.  I will have one painting, hopefully a Wood Pigeon in full flight.

Also in May , I will be exhibiting at the Peninsula Art Exhibition and Auction, another Biennial Event, always a fantastic exhibition, with some of our Amazing local Artists, Bill Hammond always has a spectacular piece.  I will post the actual dates soon, held over a weekend in May in Lyttleton Chch
