Ezra

2015
acrylic on canvas
38 x 38cm

When my nephew Ezra was very young he lived with his family in a tepee at Karekare on the West Coast of Auckland. I think that his Mum may have got the instructions on how to make a tepee from the Whole Earth Catalogue. Later on his Dad built a lovely family home on the same piece of land and Ezra still lives there today. I painted this portrait as a present to say congratulations to Ezra and Trish on the arrival of their gorgeous little boy, Benji.
