New Zealand Artists

New Zealand artists have a wonderful website for the viewing and sale of their artwork. Here's the url: http//
This oil painting, taken from the site, is by Allan Batts. It's called Flowers of Harakeke. Harakeke is Maori name for New Zealand flax (Formium tenax), a plant sacred to them, from which they made rope, medicine, clothing, and more. We can now buy that plant here to grow in our own gardens.
