NZ Travel Log 0221 – Mount Surf Shop and Artists Abound!

mt-surf-josh-and-jakeWe e-mailed Josh at Mount Surf Shop , located in the cool little town of Mount Manganui, NZ, offering to do a paint demo in the shop.  We were stoked that he was so amped to do it.

There were a lot of artists present, including Jake the musician, an artist who works there, a couple groms Annaleise and Mitchell, and the world famous Royce McClure and his talented offspring as well!

Annaleise and Mitchell Painting away

Drew put the groms to work on the painting, and they did a great job.  They even signed their names on the painted board afterwards.

mt-surf-signaturesWe met a few other artists who showed up for the event, including a local named Keith Harding, who does some great hot rod art.  He bought Drew’s DVD and some paint pens and is going to give that a go with his artwork.  Keith, if you’re reading this, send us photos of what you’ve come up with!

Mount Surf Shop was cool – it was bustling with people and activity, and I think they were happy we came.  We were, too.
