Updates, news and images from the Royal New Zealand Navy Museum

Well Underway…

It has taken me 3 weeks to get myself  sorted and ready to actually publish this little comment and pics!….Oh what a wimp I am!….the  learning curve I am on in my mind seems so steep…in reality it is NOT!…..publish and move on !

The last couple of weeks have just flown by…..I have been challenged in so many ways, the actual sheer size and hard physical work of stretching and painting backgrounds, dealing with large lengths of canvas, all the preparation,research, planning, refining, setting out… now to begin to write …..

I have managed to obtain, after a lengthy search, a sail which with a little modification will be the canvas on which an artwork titled ‘?’..I am unsure!… will be painted…..many of our ancestors both Maori and European arrived on migrant ships……our land  was settled by those that arrived from the sea… this work I hope to bring some of the ‘feel’ of this movement.
