I just discovered the awesome kiwi artist @rmmidgley on Twitter. My favourite painting of his is the one of Waiheke. He's definitely an artist to watch out for in the future. I also think that it's really cool that he started painting later on in life, his art work shows if you have a passion for something you can excel regardless of when you begin. I find all Midgley's landscapes very easy to relate to and in my mind they help capture the reality of what NZ really looks like, a sleepy farm centric world not some annoying phantasmic photo with an aim to boost NZ tourism.
