STRUAN MACDONALD – FINE ART – Landscapes. “I am interested in painting landscapes particularly portraying remote, solitary locations. Having lived most of my life in Otago and Southland, I have drawn inspiration from Central Otago with it’s craggy mountains, big skies, tussocks, crisp, clear air and schist outcrops. To the west, Fiordland with it’s misty mountains, waterfalls and beech forests provides endless inspiration.”
Viewings by appointment. 55 Western Valley Road, Little River, Banks Peninsula.
