Spring and early summer are busy times in New Zealand's art scene.
Most of the years exhibitions fall into this time so forward planning is necessary to ensure we have art for each exhibition we have signed up for.
It means less art is produced during this time, but more people get to see what we've been working on. It is an exciting time!
You can see my exhibition plan here.
As a wildlife artist is is also an amazing time to see the critters who are active after their winter quiet.
The cicada crawl out of the earth, the frogs produce a raucous night symphony, the shining cuckoo returns from the Solomon Islands and call for mates, the boy stoats roam the countryside and the grey warbler call returns to serenade my gardening tasks.
The camera is never far from me and many an hour is spent watching the antics of critters getting on with the seasonal tasks of procreation.
People also emerge at this time of year. We have folk visiting for Art Retreats and Studio Visits. Our Wildside Art Group attendance improves along with the better weather and Hinewai Reserve visitors increase exponentially.
Despite the numerous tugs on my time, spring and early summer really is a wonderful season!
