plein air painting vacation - New Zealand with Eric Rhoads

Join us for a painting vacation this September > Recently I was flipping through photos on my iPhone and reliving memories of our exotic painting trips. The photo above is a group shot from our New Zealand trip.

I love flashing back to our time painting together in places most painters will never get a chance to visit. We had lots of laughs, made new friends, had incredible meals together, and brought home some paintings to remember those special times.

Since going to New Zealand, I’ve heard the following repeatedly:

“It was amazing. I want to go back.”

“I missed it but saw the photos. Please take another trip there.”

We are going to New Zealand this fall, September 15-25, 2022.
It will be spring in New Zealand.

Typically these trips take two years of planning, advance site visits, and a lot of work. But because our tour partner is based in New Zealand, and because we visited before, we were able to put together a trip to replace the canceled Russia trip so we can travel this fall.

Yes! Take me to the website, I want to learn more.

If you’re ready for adventure and want to see New Zealand, this will be a very special trip. This is one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever visited.

If you went before, we will repeat some amazing places visited, but we are also adding some new and different destinations, including more painting time in Glenorchy (which everyone wanted) and painting in Milford Sound (which was not possible before).

Take me to the AGENDA to learn more.

This fall you will be experiencing spring in New Zealand. 65-degree temps, fresh colorful flowers, and green fields. Our last trip was in their fall, and things were more golden brown. This is the perfect time to paint in New Zealand!
