That Wanaka Tree

My first painting of the Lake Wanaka area. A small willow tree in the lake, sprouted from a post and wire fence of 100 years ago which prevented sheep from wandering off the farm to visit town. #thatwanakatree is recently global on instagram and is now over-run and damaged by people climbing all over it for selfies – a bit like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife (…or not much like that at all, as you prefer).
