RICHARD DE RAINE
I grew up with an appreciation for our country when I spent more and more time in the wilderness of our beloved home land. More so when I met a man who gave me the gift of living waters from a spring that never runs dry.
As a consequence the spark of eternity speaks to me. From every mountain, rock, river, and being waiting to he exposed and revealed by every ability known.
The arts is one aspect of that and whether it be music, sculpture, painting it will always come forth now.
Born in Christchurch and faced with the back yard of our heritage I'm compelled to express that. Its time now for our gifts and talents to come forth in a greater way than ever before to remind us of the beauty in this world given.
