Zangle Sundown

"Zangle Sundown", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Panel
This painting of the Cove was from sometime in the fall--I did about 6-8 paintings at different times of day. These were the colors just before sundown.

From over 100 degree weather in Western Australia to 40-50 degrees in Northern New Zealand just before sun down at a beautiful chalet hotel at the foot of Mt. Ruapehu (I think that is the mountain), a volcano.  This is much more like weather I am use to in the Pacific Northwest, but it is summer here! Tomorrow we do the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing, a 10 mile hike. I'll let you know if we make it all the way--

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. Boy do I love this painting. All the colors I love, the simplification and the beautiful, thick brushwork!!

  2. Love the greens in this and that pink sky and how you kept it basic and powerful. Super nice.

  3. Thank you Carol and Stephanie--I really appreciate your comments!

  4. I love this painting. All the colors I love brushwork!Thanks...
