Week Beginning 17th June
I have been busy busy busy this last week and next week is going to be just as busy! I am working on some pieces for an exhibition, several comissions, a piece for an "artswap" as well as all my regular sales (and they seem to be selling as fast as I can paint them lately!)
I have picked this as one as my favourite. I have done several similar to this and they have all seemed to prove pretty popular. This particular one will be going to Thorton gallery in Hamilton for their "One Size fits all" exhibition next month.... for more info visit

Week Beginning 9th June
Tough decission! I have at least 2 favourites this week but have decided to choose this one because I just adore the way Mitre Peak looks in paintings. I completed 8 paintings this week... 2 Tui's, 2 Pukeko's, a Kaka, a Morepork, a Kokako and the Wood Pigeon, not to mention all the Toi Toi, Rata, Nikau, Pohutukawa, Cabbage Tree and of course the infamous Mitre Peak that adorned the backdrops!

Week Beginning 2nd June
5 Paintings done this week. Being a holiday on Monday only left me with 4 days of painting this week. I resureacted a painting from last month making it more appealing, reinvented some old ideas and basically painted nothing overly exciting but later on in the week did come up with some great ideas so will hopefully have something a bit more exciting to showcase next week. I have chosen this painting "Swamp Dwellers" to due to its public appeal. This and others I have done along a similar vain have seem to be very popular though personally not my favourites.
Week Beginning 26th May 2008
I completed 4 pieces this week. 3 out of 4 with a heavy focus on Native NZ birds after browsing through a book on Maori Bird Lore... a Tui, a Bellbird and a Kakapo. I know have heaps of inspiration for more paintings after looking through this book so am looking foward to doing some different species of New Zealand birds. My Favourite this week though has got to be the Bellbird and kaka beaks.
