Donated to and sold by Te Omanga Hospice, Lower Hutt at their Vintner’s Lunch fundraiser in July 2018 – in memory of old friends Greg Guy and Sue Steele (who was at Te Omanga in June 2018).

Version 5 or so of this view from my ex-office window with the world and all its weathers going by, very distracting. Early morning I think, not that I’d know much about that.
I started with the hills and reflections, then decided that I liked the sea and sky in white per the canvas instead of turquoise and blue as planned – so it got put aside while I took 6 months or so to agree with myself!!!
The same view that I used for my 2003 Wellington phone book cover – except more expressionist perhaps. Oils 600x450mm,
Beautiful work Alistair!
Needs a bit more depth in the sky and sea even so – funny how seeing it digitally does that, yet also need to avoid over-fiddling!
Nice comment, thanks
