Currently it is at Copyart for scanning and it is scheduled to hang at Wall To Wall Art Gallery, Nelson mid February. It took a lot of research on Kiwi birds and rugby games until the final layout of the painting was determined.    I watched YouTube videos and researched conservation websites to understand the anatomy of the kiwi and its posture.…
