I painted this little oil on location a while ago, in Sandspit. It's just east of Warkworth, New Zealand - my original hometown before I moved to the Bay of Islands. My son, daughter-in-law and three grandkids are moving to New Zealand in a few months. I'm really looking forward to taking the kids to Sandspit to swim, which is where I swam as a kid.  It's safe and shallow.


  1. Adele, what a profound influence moving to NZ, in addition to your continuing exploration of oil, has had on your work. This is a stunning piece . . . a wonderful touch . . . beautiful brush work . . . subtle palette . . . everything one could ask for in a fine work of art.

  2. Thank you Terry! I appreciate your encouraging words.
