Happy New Year
Happy New Year! I hope that this year is filled with good health and the love of family and friends, and that we have new (non-COVID) adventures around the corner.
It has been wonderful to have a couple of weeks break and the weather has been brilliant in Wellington. In fact I've broken my record for the number of ocean swims in a summer due to the warmer weather and sea temperatures!
I've been snapping pictures wherever I have gone and have plenty of inspiration for this years botanical paintings. These roses are currently blooming at Wellington Botanical Gardens, which is such a beautiful place to go and literally "smell the roses".
I've just finished this oil painting titled "New Dawn Rosa" after the rose itself. It isn't on my website as new work is offered to subscribers first. It will be up on my website at the end of January, if it doesn't sell beforehand. The painting is on board and measures 60cm round (23.5 inches).
My sale ends soon (end of January), so if you are looking to spruce up your space or know of someone you love who really needs to, head on over to my website
If you've managed to read to the end - thank you!
