Whangaroa Inlet

A day trip away with my darling dearest had me relishing in the idea of en plein air painting in a new location. I was keeping an eye out for anything special that might be a good subject.

And there it was…

It must have been because I was paying particular attention because I have driven this way many times before and not noticed this beautiful old tub languishing in the shallows.

It wasn’t long before easel and paints were out and the morning drifted by way too fast. This secluded little spot on Whangaroa Inlet  between Lake Rotoiti and Lake Rotoma will never pass me by unnoticed again. That’s the beauty of painting…these places and times magically become added to my storehouse of wonderful memories… even when the painting goes to a new home like this one has.
