2018 Calendars are now available! When I began planning my 2018 calendar I asked friends and family what New Zealand means to them – I was surprised by the answers! Flora and fauna, the people , the hospitality and the landscape (did you know that New Zealand has 14,000km of coastline?) , we all have special memories of our country. I had fun painting from both these ideas and my own. I hope that the paintings bring a smile to your face, and if you’re away from New Zealand , fond memories . Enjoy the slide show below showing the images which feature... The price of $25 includes NZ postage (please contact me for overseas posting rates) plus a complimentary gift card. To order please email me at janthomsonart@gmail,com

6 Hi , I'm delighted that I was recently visited by a film crew from the Australian TV art series "Colour in Your Life" , who spent a day filming me painting watercolour in my studio. The resulting episode screens this week - if you'd like to see my process and my paintings, please put it on your calendar! The show goes to air in Australia on *6pm April 22nd * (NSW time)on channel 4ME and is available on youtube now if you'd like a sneak preview the link is https://www.colourinyourlife.com.au/tv-show-ep/jan-thomson/ The episode will be showing on free to air tv in New Zealand and other countries later on this year..
