I live in Pirongia in the Waikato and like most Kiwi’s, I felt the earthquake that occurred two minutes after midnight on 14 November.

I can only imagine how traumatic it must have been for those living closer to the epicentre and during the following days as I watched images unfold of the devastating effects it had caused, decided to create a painting to be auctioned to raise funds for those affected. (Another artist had the same idea – please check out the auction for the pencil sketch of ‘Island Cows' as well).

One positive piece of news I did see was when the whales returned to the local waters and this gave me the idea of incorporating the whales and seals into the landscape. The fact that the sealife had returned gave hope, and serves as a reminder of the Kiwi spirit - and the spirit of Kaikoura - ‘Wairua o Kaikoura’.

The painting is in acrylics and charcoal on stretched boxed canvas, sealed and ready to hang and measures 20 x 30 inches (76 x 51cm).

All proceeds from this auction will go to the November 2016 Earthquake Appeal (NZ Red Cross).

Thanks for looking, and if you’re bidding – thanks for your support on behalf of Kaikoura and the surrounding districts. Please read the questions and answers for this listing.
