Found in Orewa

There's a great Hospice shop in Orewa and last time I was there I found this lovely little oil painting by Yvonne Paine. A note written in pen on the back says that it was hung in the Academy of Fine Arts exhibition in 1967. Sellotaped to the back there was also a photocopy of a newspaper article about a gift made by the artist to the Tauranga Art Gallery of a painting called Windy Day.

Three works by Academy women have made their way into my collection now and I plan to keep my eye out for more.
