Shaped like a lightning bolt, Lake Wakatipu is the third largest lake in New Zealand and is located in Queenstown. This painting is of the stunning lake in the autumn, providing you with great texture and colour to brighten up any wall in your home/office! We really hope you enjoy this, because we enjoyed creating it for you! Difficulty: 3.5/5

 

Because of its unusual shape, Lake Wakatipu has a 'tide' (more correctly, an unusually large seiche or "standing wave"), which causes the water to rise and fall about 10 centimetres every 25 minutes or so. Maori legend links this phenomenon to the heartbeat of a huge monster named Matau, who is said to be slumbering at the bottom of the lake.

 

This image was taken by Ty Beets recently on a trip to Queenstown, on a crisp, clear autumn day.

 

FRAME IT - TWO WAYS TO FRAME

Magnetic Poster Frame:

Our picture hangers make it easy for you to display your works of art and constantly swap out what's on display without damaging your pieces.  Add a black (teak sold out) magnetic picture hanger to your order for only an extra $18.  Save $4 as the frames are $22 each if you buy without a painting.

 

DIY Stretched Canvas Frame:

The other framing option is our DIY stretched frame kit for only $18 ($20 if you purchase without a painting).  This DIY kit is easy to use and allows you to transform your painting into a professionally presented artwork with a taut, wrinkle-free canvas stretched over a sturdy wooden frame, creating a polished and gallery-ready appearance.  The process pictures are shown in photos above, and video will be added to our "education" page on our website

 

We are a small NZ business - we have stock available and courier out from Auckland - you don't need to wait to start loving your new painting!
