New Zealand Flax is a tall plant with sword-shaped leaves that grow up to 5 meters tall, darkish green with colorful edges and central ribs in shades of red, bronze, pink and yellow. The leaves produce fibers that the Maori traditionally weave and twist for rope, tools, nets and clothing.

I painted this scene of flax amid the shady brush of a small river flowing down from Mount Ruapehu in Tongariro Volcanic Park on the North Island. It was a hot summer day in December, a perfect time to paint and sip Tui beer next to a swimming hole in the cool river valley.

This print is reproduced from my original painting.
Signed and numbered by me, Kim Solga.

This print is a limited Edition of 50 on 140lb. cold-press textured Watercolor Paper.
Image Size: 15" x 12 1/2"
Paper Size: 18 3/4" x 16"

A smaller print of this painting is also available. See http://www.etsy.com/listing/98938185/new-zealand-riverside-reflections-small

This print is made with the best quality giclee printing process, an exact reproduction of the original painting - same size, same colors, same style of paper. It is printed on archival grade watercolor paper which has a nubby texture, using archival, fade-resistant inks. This full sized print has all the beautiful richness of the original watercolor!

Two of the additional images show details of the painting, with graulated watercolor pigments and overlying pen and ink. The third photo is of the painting in process, done on location, painted with water dipped from the stream at my feet.

I sign the print in the white area below the image (with title, my signature, and edition number, as is traditional for limited edition prints). If you would like to have it signed ON the image, please convo me so I can include my signature there as well.

This print is enclosed in sealed cello for protection and shipped safely in a flat box. The story of the painting is included with the print. It is mailed to you by first class postage, and may require up to 3 business days to ship out. If you require earlier shipment, please convo me first. I take the utmost care in packing your purchases so that they arrive safely and in pristine condition.

If you are sending this to someone as a gift, I am glad to include a gift note with your personal message. Just let me know what you would like to say.

Thank you for visiting the Blue Otter shop!

I look forward to hearing from you!
