Two New Zealand landscape paintings featuring waka (canoes) to be exhibited in Christchurch

After my ‘Good as Goldie‘ portrait was snapped up the first day it arrived at Bryce Gallery in Christchurch last month, the next two paintings are finally arriving today.

They are two serene landscape paintings with waka (canoes), both inspired by Maori voyaging legends.

Calling all you Cantabrians!

Head along to Bryce Gallery and check them out. In person you will be able to appreciate the smoothness of the paintwork and the level of detail that has gone into the native huia birds and intricately carved waka prows.
