'The Grass is Greener'


This original oil painting is a luxurious work of art. Lush greenery and dancing lights enrich your home with a moment of calm and serenity.

Featuring tall swaying grasses and shimmering gold tones, along with the magical light filtering through distant trees; the painting is a reminder that the grass is not greener on 'the other side of the fence', but right here where you tend it.

Let this painting breathe new life into your walls, and help you nurture your space with a touch of beauty.

Original oil painting

Painted by New Zealand Artist Mel McKenzie (The Penny Drops) in 2023.

This oil painting captures low light on the fringes of the day as it dances in the long grass and shimmers in the trees. An original painting exploring bokeh - a recurring theme in Mel's work which expresses the beauty that exists in our surroundings when we take off the sharp edges of reality.

The artwork is sold unframed although framing is available as shown, for local customers by enquiry.
