March Update

Whew! Exciting month already. We have just come back from a week in our camper van ( in the loose sense of the words!! A bed and a pota potty) and had the excitement of evacuating our beach front camp site early Friday morning with tsunami alerts on our mobile phones. Wonderful technology! So the van was driven to higher ground, and there we stayed for 4 hours while we waited for a tsunami or the all clear, whichever came first.

The view from the back of the van where we waited. Made lots of coffee’s and cups of teas for those not as lucky to have their facilities with them.

It gave me to opportunity to sit and do some plein air painting as well
Waiting for a tsunami, Ohiwa Harbour.
After going inland that night we went back to the coast when it was clear and spent the day at Thornton Beach. More plein air attempted.

Towards the end of February I had a small class to do an Abstract Watercolour day. Experienced artists who will use the knowledge they gained to extend into their own style and techniques. A very rewarding time for all of us.

Surprisingly last year was a good year for sales of original works for me. Thank you to those of you who have purchased my art and I would love to see photos of them on your walls. It always makes me feel good to know that someone loves my work enough to want it.

I’m not going to say anything about COVID 19 apart from the fact that it has given the art world the opportunity to exhibit across the globe in a far more frequent and acceptable manner.
On my English cousins recommendation I have entered the Jacksons Painting Prize 2021 in Watercolour. ( thanks Margaret). I’m looking forward to that going live and seeing an international array of watercolourists next month.
Dale Copeland artist, has a virtual gallery at and for this month is showcasing art from the small group Unlimited Palette, of which I am a member. Check out the works on this website. We have had some great responses from artists all over the world.
The Windsor and Newton Summer Competition of the Watercolour NZ society includes a painting of mine.

Thank you all for following my blog. Would love to have some feedback about it.
