Small is Beautiful


Last night Tom and I attended the opening of an Art Exhibition in a popular Gallery in Akaroa. I had the wonderful privilege of being asked to exhibit in their “Small is Beautiful” Christmas exhibition which will run until the 22nd. We loved looking at all the wonderful art of the other exhibitors, and getting to know some of them.

My own pieces were well received and I was delighted to hear the comments. The most popular were the birds and the one shown here was one of the first to sell.

This little bird is a female Tomtit, a New Zealand native bird, very tiny and very energetic. Difficult to photograph as it never sits still for long. She led me a merry dance before I was able to finally get this image of her.

Small is definitely beautiful, but I’m not ruling out the bigger birds either. I’ve been trying to get close to some pukekos and their chicks, without a lot of success to date. But I will keep trying.
