Oriental Bay from Wellington CBD

Donated to Te Omanga Hospice for their Vintner’s Lunch fundraiser in July 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.

The hills and reflections were completed in late 2016, then decided that I liked the sea and sky in white per the gesso on 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 (and more yellow!)

The frame was generously donated by Dean Walker of Affordable Framers, Whitby and the profiles by Olsen-Juhl NZ.

Oils 600x450mm,
