Back in the Garden City

My husband and I were lucky. We were in Auckland when the big Quake hit, the quake that devastated our home city. Today we arrived home. Our home is fine. We don't call it Fortress Lemur for nothing. Our "casualties" were: a pizza stone and three bookcases (the books are ok, however). We have power and water. Others were not so lucky.

To raise money for those who are without power, without water, and sometimes without homes, I have created a fundraising blog: in which you can acquire original art from me, and (with any luck) other artists by making a donation of $10 or more to the Red Cross Earthquake fund. Please check it out.

I have created two Art Cards of now lost Christchurch Heritage buildings for this page:

The Christchurch Cathedral - the spire and part of the hall collapsed, killing around 20 people.

The Timeball Station - the Quake was situated very near this charming brick building. Now its masonry lies in piles - its future unknown.
