STRUANSTRUAN 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.  and at The Village Art Studio 4223 Christchurch Akaroa Road, behind Petrol Station, Little River               Contact Kath Macdonald             027 298 9288    website
