Base Camp: Pipe Dream?
In this image friend Steuart Welch’s sculpture frames our new living space. We have moved into Base Camp while we plan the new build and landscape the one hectare site! No studio to paint in here – the new painting space is an industrial shed in Otaki. I got this shot by lying full stretch on the mulch looking up hill. It took me about 20 minutes to get back up onto my feet! The sculpture is called ‘Pipe Dream’. See more of Steuart’s work at www.steuartwelch.co.nz.
The photo above is taken from Peka Peka Road, and shows the entrance to Quail Ridge lane with Base Camp in the foothills and the bulldozers in action up on ‘Everest’.
