Seaside Beetle

I have included our 65 VW in this painting of coastal view from along Shag Point between Oamaru and Dunedin. I have used artistic licence here and made some minor changes to the out look but painting very much reflects the area. The old cottages use to be coal miners homes which are now used as seaside holiday cottages. Area has a very interesting history.

Coastal Painting

This one is of Taylor's Mistake near Christchurch one of my favoured spots with lots rustic batches and old over grown macrocarpa trees.
