New Zealand Art Show 2012

Next weekend, August 3rd 4th and 5th the NZ Art show is on at The TSB Bank Arena. Queens Wharf, Wellington.

This is now the biggest Art show in New Zealand with 3000 art works on display from over 400 artists, selected from over 1200 artist submissions.

I am fortunate to have five paintings in the show, all that I submitted.

Two large landscapes (or 'skyscapes')

"Crimson Cloud"(48in x 48in"

"Big Sky South" (48in x 48in)

Both of these paintings were set from the same location, namely Lake Wairarapa at Lake Reserve looking toward the Aorangi Mountains.

A spot where the mountains and the lake reflections perfectly set of the soaring sky.

The next painting is "Moon With Balloon".

A smaller painting looking toward the Tararua Ranges at early evening.
 I am a little disappointmented by the photo of this painting , not showing the subtle apricot, primrose and duck egg green colours of the twilight sky.

The fourth  painting is "Perfect Summer- Two Deckchairs"

The last from the series  'Perfect Summer'.

Finally one of my 'Island' paintings, "Island II"
