For many years, the Kapiti Arts Trail has been a regular entry in my Exhibition calendar excepting very recently since this property was sold and I had no suitable Trail space to exhibit in. Each year my ‘studio’ at Otaki Forks overlooking the river gorge, had to be cleared and repainted to transform it into a ‘Gallery’ through which hundreds of people ‘trailed’ each year.
I continued to paint (and sell my paintings) throughout these weekends while chatting to visitors and trying to explain what I was doing on the work-in-progress canvases on show, alongside those that were finished. Outside under the canopy of a large portico, additional paintings – along with a selection of Bruce Winter’s small sculptures, were exhibited. The Kapiti Arts Trails were always enjoyable occasions with excellent sales.
