Red Tree, Nuhaka-Mahia Road

A series of 3 inspired by Mondrian’s “Red Tree”. We’ve travelled the Nuhaka-Mahia road to Mahanga beach for 45+ years now – it’s a bit remote out here, the gravel has been only recently sealed, not wide enough for a centre line, no signposts for the tricky 90 degree corners at both ends of this section.

This tree has dominated the view, I can’t remember it when it was small. When I went up there last summer shortly after finishing this pic was gone, chainsawed into bits by the roadside. Perhaps 1 winter storm too many.
