New Zealand Pohutukawa Flower - 'Hot Summer' Nature Series
Dimensions: 150mmH x 150mmW x 35mmD
Media: Acrylic Paint
Painted On: Boxed Stretched Canvas
I wanted to paint a series of contemporary style small paintings that I could reproduce into prints. I ended up painting seven images and named them accordingly for the Nature Series - 'Hot Summer'.
The Pohutukawa flower comes from our New Zealand Xmas Tree and looks spectacular in summer lining most of our coastlines as well as other areas of New Zealand.
The tree becomes ablaze with the lovely red flowers and Maori believe that if the tree flowers prior to Xmas, it means the Kaimoana (Seafood) will be fat and great to eat!
This image has been made into prints which are available for purchase.
