Lake Tekapo

Last November my friend Andi visited from Austria so we decided to go on a South Island road trip together. Lake Tekapo was our first stop coming from Christchurch. The Water is intensely turquoise especially if it's not a cloudy day. We stayed at the campsite for the night but omg it was so cold!
We spotted some other tourists crouching inbetween the lupin flowers getting their postcard shot, so we asked them to take one of us.

Moeraki Boulders

After our Stewart Island trip we stopped to check out the Moeraki Boulders, which are a series of spherical shaped, large boulders that look like dinosaur-alien eggs. Some of them are cracked open and have orange coloured crystals inside. Very cool. Thery're located just off State Highway 1 bewteen Dunedin and Omaru.

Hi all :)

I haven't updated this blog in a while and it's because I find it easier doing little snippets over on Instagram (photos & art) and Facebook (art only), than writing whole posts. I might return to it one day but for now you can find me over there. Click the Instagram pic above or the Facebook one below to see what's happening.

Vali Myers

It's auction time again at the Bad Apple Artist Collective. This time the theme is "Ladies of Legend" and I chose to paint a portrait of the truly fascinating Vali Myers, an artist, dancer, shamaness, muse, animal lover and original.

"Vali Myers was a unique spirit born out of time. She lived her extraordinary life like a bright flame, cutting her own unique path and living on her own terms: a tightrope walker - one foot in this world and one in a dreamworld that we can only glimpse in her profound artwork."

Click here to bid on my painting in the auction. Bidding will end June 30th at 5 pm EDT.

This painting was created for the exhibition "Solid Gold Vol II" at Pennylane Records happening TONIGHT at 430 Colombo Street in Sydenham, Christchurch. It's inspired by a song by Edward Ka-Spel that I've wanted to paint for a while so this vinyl sized paintings exhibition was the perfect opportunity. You can listen to the song here and the lyrics for it are below:

She fed the lion candy so its teeth turned pink and scattered.
She gathered up the pieces, hid them deep beneath her bed.
Made a wish for lion trees-so roses grew.
Red roses and the lion watched his ghost go hunting bees....

Bees which hovered, dropped and split as thorns grew moist and ripped.
Black yellow dripping red....
It wrecked the carpet, made the lion weep for his meat.
Live meat. Raw meat.

Tanith climbed the lion tree. The lion tree was very pleased.
She fed the lions candy as she handed out the straws.
