DESCRIPTION:

Rotovegas Rotorua Mud Pools - 80cm Acrylic on Canvas spin painting

Whilst brainstorming New Zealand themed ideas for circular paintings over a few wines, my flatmates (from Rotorua) mentioned their beloved  hometown Rotorua/Rotovegas/Rockovegas  as it is commonly referred to in New Zealand.  We googled images of mud pools and all things Rotorua.  This painting is a tribute to Ryan, Jade and Brooke of a mud pool in Rockovegas.

Hells Gate geothermal attraction is Rotorua's most active geothermal park and is known as the "AWESOME BEAST" of New Zealand Geothermal attractions. Hells Gate geothermal attraction features boiling hot pools and erupting waters with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees Celsius; steaming fumaroles; hot water lakes; sulphur crystals and deposits; New Zealand's largest active mud volcano; Southern Hemisphere's largest hot water fall and even examples of land coral.
