Papatuanuku Kokiri Marae (SOLD)

Oil on canvas (950mm x1050mm), 2014. This Marae is based around the Maara-garden run by Val and Lionel with the support of their whanau and friends. Each year they grow tons of kumara. While I was painting there was a preschool visiting and all the little ones toured through the garden after being welcomed on by Val. Hearing the karanga ring out across the worked earth and the peace of the place was truly beautiful.
