On the announcement by Jacinda Ardern the Prime Minister of New Zealand of her decision to retire I thought I would post my painting and words from March 2019 after the heartbreaking tragedy of the Christchurch mosque attack:
“Compassion, strength, comfort, and humility: true leadership for leaders of the world to learn from.”
Five years ago today I was also in a Venice frame of mind.
Studio 365: Day 142 22.5.15
Venice study I 22.5.15
Painting this watercolour and ink sketch in the studio this afternoon allowed me to re-visit our magical trip to Venice in July 1999, a visit documented in a precious journal that I kept throughout our Italian travels that year.
The Pacific Spirit Park floor came to the studio this afternoon after our daily walk.
