This Sirpa original is based on her hike to a local hilltop, Mt Stokes. It is the highest point in the Marlborough Sounds where she lives, giving magnificent views of the sounds. However on the day of the hike with her adult children the weather turned and it was a whiteout at the top. But this resulted into magical misty forest on the way to the top, the overcast and misty light brought out the forest colors extremely vibrant and created mystical feel to the trip. This is extra large original painting in a diptych format. 2m x 1.5m total size. This piece will bring the New Zealand forest into your living space, as if you were there with the hikers.
