Gateway to the MountainsFor my entry “Gateway to the Mountains’ I was honoured with first place in the Painting division at the 2015, 50th Annual Exhibition for the Active Arts, Taupo.  Once the exhibition was officially opened I had the joy of seeing it sold within a minute. Wow! May the new owners have many happy years of enjoyment.


Mail from Middle Earth arrived  bringing good news!

Shirley’s Shoes, here in Taupo, have a competition before every new catalogue is printed for original artwork to add colour and flavour to it’s pages. They honoured me with a place in the 2015 Autumn/Winter catalogue with ‘Kiwi on Tryfan’.
