About the Work
I couldn't go past Peter McIntyre and this iconic landscape of our lovely part of the world. We grew up with Peter McIntyre's New Zealand in the house, able to take virtual tours of the country through the paintings in that book, which has always been a family favourite. This feels like an autumnal painting, perfect for now. I love the detail of the clusters of sheep, the rocks at the river bend and the lone trees on the ridge tops, so similar to those we pass when driving through the Parapara Highway.
