‘When I painted this picture I was living in Barbour Street, Christchurch, but the actual subject of the picture relies very much on my memory of the Otago landscape. This was a Dunedin thing I particularly liked around Wakari, especially when the trees are as they are shown in the painting sitting on the skyline as they do. No doubt all this landscape profile has now vanished.’
