New Zealand


Beautiful, beautiful country... Lush and exciting. For more details on this fun 52 Postcard Challenge and to visit my fellow world travelers please go say hi to Darcy of Art & Sole. For New Zealand I had only one choice and I’m sure y’all know what is. Yes Māori, I found a lovely pic online of a woman and I tried to recreate her … sorta.

#18 From Liz to Allen; Acrylic Paint, touches of Prisma Pencils



Dear Allen,

Good to know Chloe won’t mind. It’s nice to know a relationship based on trust does exist. I can’t help but wonder how it’s done tho. Been in New Zealand. I think for the Māori peoples aggression increases courage.

Aroh nui, Liz

ps  Love it - a Surprise!



Oh my, I’m excited to find out what county and when they will meet…will it be good…will they really like each other…questions are exploding in my head. I suppose I will just have to wait and see, just like y’all.

PS This Posting (IMO) qualifies as a 29 Faces Post – even though I drew it on May 1 ... in honor of the 52 Postcards Challenge it couldn't be posted till today. 

Happy Art’in Y’all
