Haka Powhiri

I have made a few tentative steps towards preparing for my next painting about Leo going to work at the other side of the world.
Last week I made some drawings of the old beams in our 300 year old cottage (laid on the floor so I could look up at the ceiling) to represent the UK and I shall contrast these with a structure of a maori meeting house to symbolise New Zealand.
Haka Powhiri is a chant of welcome when newcomers come ashore and maybe the title of my new painting - we'll see how it develops.
