New Beginnings

In this painting the landscape is seen as the birth mother of the new day. The Pohutukawa tree with its beautiful form, along with its lovely flowers is a great inspiration when representing the New Zealand coastal landscape. If you are familiar with the Maori legend of creation you may notice the subtle hints to the soft warm Papatuanuku and her loving bosom still rising up in hope to meet Ranginui once again.Part of the Female Landscape Series.
