Pause - Lake Wanaka limited edition print

A fine art giclée reproduction of an original watercolour artwork. Edition range is 25. total.

Printed with exceptional quality light fast for 100 years inks these prints are such incredible reproductions it's hard to tell them apart from the original.



There is a somewhat secret spot in Wanaka of this view where mid walk you can sit down and take a pause. It's up on the corner of a hill near Peninsula Bay surrounded by native bush and right on the edge is a tiny clearing with a bench seat. It looks out on Stephenson's Arm and the lake. 

Its as if its an invitation to pause. An invitation to feel like you're in the middle of the wilderness surrounded by wonder and feeling completely in awe even though you are only ten minutes from town.

You are completely alone and the view is all yours for the short moments that you choose to be there for. If you surrender to the pause then this moment will be only yours forever. You can keep coming back and if you are there at sunrise then pause a little longer.

When ever you are here
When ever you need
When pink light floods the sky
Always pause
You have it within you
You can be the pause
You can chose it at anytime
When you imagine the sky is pink
