JUST DON'T HESITATE TO EXAGGERATE COLOR AND LIGHT. DON'T WORRY ABOUT TELLING LIES. THE MOST TIRESOME PICTURES ARE THE STUPIDLY TRUTHFUL ONES - Wm Merritt Chase

Across the Bay
This piece is fresh off the easel. It's a 30" x 30" oil on Ampersand 2" deep cradleboard. Unframed, it gives the painting a more contemporary feel which is what I'm aiming for. The birds are New Zealand pied stilts; a very common bird in my part of New Zealand.
This painting will stay in New Zealand and can be seen at the Opua Gallery on the wharf in Opua.
