Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. Louisa May Alcott
'Flight over Orakei' was inspired by all the wonderful native birds we have inhabiting our wetlands. There is a walkway in Orakei which beautifies and protects these natural reserves so people and the bird/ plantlife can live harmoniously. This was painted when I returned from Japan. The heron (flying) is a symbol of Japan as the koru painted over Rangitoto island is a symbol of the Maori energy in the land.
Painted in acrlics on canvas.
