This took a long time to finish. Chris slowly pieced together ideas and icons that made this a very personal and loving work. I was very proud when we were able to frame this and send it away. Many of the lessons from our Christmas set went into the painting of this. I really enjoyed introducing the designs for the kowhai, southern cross and map. Collaborating with Chris on these results in an extensive debriefing after each project, and while this can overwhelm us, it also results in amazing advances as we will see in the sister work “Victoria”
