Sunny November

I have often wondered how good it would be to have a solo exhibition. Now I know. It’s a lot of work but so rewarding, especially when it’s held in Hawera, the town of my birth. Monday night 8th November was opening night for my Watercolour Reflections, Past and Present exhibition. I have been preparing for this exhibition since February and it was a great opening night with lots of my whanau (extended family) there to support me.

Official opening speech.
There are two rooms to the gallery with over 45 paintings hanging.
So exciting to see my name up on the gallery window. Almost like the lights of Hollywood.!!!

While we were down in Taranaki I used some time to find a beach and sit and do some plein air drawing.

This is Waihi Beach Hawera. Different to Waihi Beach Bay of Plenty. The wild coast and black iron sands are so different to where we live.
The mouth of the Waiongongora River, Ohawe.
Whitebait fishermen at the mouth of the river at Kaupokonui Beach, Taranaki.

Such a relaxing time soaking in the sun and atmosphere of the region of my birth. On the road trip back home we called in to the Lockwood show homes in Rotorua which are currently hosting an exhibition of art within the show homes. It was lovely to see work from local artists and my own work.

Not a very successful photo with all the reflections but it did look nice on the blonded timber walls of the house.

Well another exhibition has been canceled for this year. Franklin Arts exhibition will now be held from the 4th -13th March 2022. Hopefully those dates will be successful ones for Auckland.

EVENTS coming up early next year will include an Open Studio at Auckland Anniversary weekend.

The Art Tour from 14th – 19th February, to the Bay of Islands and Franklin Arts now in March.

Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog of what has been happening in my art world.
