I live near Mt Kaukau in Wellington and I walk up it quite often. At one point on the way down there is a view through dark trees down a long flight of steps to a well-lit clearing beyond. I saw someone at the bottom one day and felt quite excited about putting it in a painting. The clearing turned out not so well-lit, and the person at the bottom turned into a beautiful woman who has a prominent place in my imagination. For some reason I decided to try to bodge this scene together with another, equally prominent scene of a picnic, and it is sort of two pictures in one, but I think it works. It took me a long time to come up with the right title.
