As mentioned in my email, I’ve had this photo put aside to paint for years, and I always thought I’d taken it in Northland, New Zealand, when I spent some time there in 2005, but it appears that’s probably not the case! Now I’m totally flummoxed. The church does certainly seem to be in the style of those built in New Zealand in the 1800’s, but as someone pointed out, it could be Australia as the trees on either side look rather like gum trees and I suspect the dry grassy area in the foreground would fit too. If Australia, it could only be NSW, but at this stage I’ll leave ‘NZ’ in the painting title, and if anyone has any suggestions, I’d be glad to receive them!
