The West Coast in March

A request for paintings led to a week spent driving up and down the South Island’s West Coast looking for good places to paint and absorbing the working people’s histories so vividly etched in the landscape and the towns.  No wonder you can’t take the coast out of a coaster!  This view is from the Strongman Mine Memorial, a commemoration of the 19 men who lost their lives in a mine explosion in 1967.  It is also a very popular spot for the large number of tourists to stop as well.
