Late 2019, before COVID hit New Zealand dear devoted husband towed a disgracefully noisy, bumpy rented furniture trailer full of paintings (and one tired passenger – in the car not the trailer) to Matakana (nine hours driving, arriving at 2am) because the VW van we usually stack the paintings in, blew a foo-foo valve the day before. Never had a single problem with it to date – Murphy’s Law! This morning almost recovered, dear devoted peered through this fabulous Rudy Van Der Pol metal sculpture to capture yours truly posing for the camera during the hanging of said paintings at the AMG. Managed to get 14 big and small paintings finished and well hung for this solo exhibition – not such a disgraceful outcome after all. Below Abandon Ship at 1200mm square and The Last Of The Summer Sun which is 2000mm x 1000mm.
