Lord of the Forest...
the cape-feathers all fog-cloud-like, billowing down into the solid vegetation....
the glow of the mist as the waterfall hits the earth.......
the royal feather and powerful eyes full of intent...
awesome in so many ways
in theme/in scale/in atmosphere/in character/in lushness/in craftsmanship
and in spirit....
seeping in spirit...
there is such a mix of great feeling,thought,time,and talent
in both of these new ones....
the fact they evolve and are born so slowly
makes them even more precious...
Mad props Limey!

Hey ST and LLT, Thanks for appreciating the work fellas and taking the time to write (nicely put and considered LLT). Just wish I could show the originals to you. They sing so much more...

Lord of the Forest is truly amazing. A real new level of powerful skill with the paint and a deeper subtle spiritual sense in your imagery. Very original.

As mystical as a Tarot card image.

Limey, your work really moves me, I refuse to pick a favorite. I'd sure like to see your work in person. This type of originality is terribly rare.

Hey Robb, I would like you to see my work in person too. Hey! I got it, You could always buy a print. But seriously, I would be well keen to push the work out of NZ. I think the states would have an appreciative tikified audience and I have been considering contacting a few galleries to test the water. Ive got a few ideas, but any tips or leads would be welcome.

Kia ora one and all. I thought I would add these two newbies to the mix. Working on the last piece for the show now and getting excited. I'm calling it Grand-Land. Come along if you are in the hood. 



Ten Cent Mix 101 x 84 cm, Oil on Linen
With time, small treasures of a by-gone era slip out of sight and into memory. 
In a by-gone era, cars were cool, summers were hot and the high point of a day was a trip to the dairy where everything I could ever want could be bought for a dollar.



Kehu 101 x 84 cm, Oil on Linen 
As bushman and tracker for Brunner, Heaphy and Fox, KehuÕs job was to keep the party alive as they arduously chartered the north-west of Te Wai Pounamu. Heaphy concluded that Kehu was worth his weight in tobacco! - The perfect bushman.
