Auckland Council principal rural fire officer Bryan Cartelle says conditions have been a mixed bag'' so far this summer. Conditions were unseasonably dry early on while the end of Decem- ber brought more rain. It's hard to say when the restriction will end. Just when we think about ending it conditions change and turn very dry again,'' Mr Cartelle says. Fire permits are required all- year round but more conditions are placed on them during the restricted season according to the risk. These could include making sure there is water around to fight a blaze. Fires are not permitted in urban areas but in rural areas fire is a land management tool and sometimes there is no other way to clear away scrub or debris. Call the council on 301-0101 to apply for a permit. Painting mates put their work on show Landscape painters: Ed Taylor and Terry Prince are celebrating the spirit of the west with an exhibition at Upstairs Gallery. Photo: NICOLA MURPHY By NICOLA MURPHY They became friends through a shared love of music but Ed Taylor and Terry Prince soon dis- covered they had some- thing else in common: a flair for painting. Now they are ex- hibiting together at Upstairs Gallery in Titirangi. Spirit of the West features landscape paintings by both men. Mr Taylor's are in oil paint and use only one colour while Mr Prince's are acrylic and feature a variety of muted colours. The paintings have a misty, ethereal look to them,'' Mr Prince says. The pair say they decided to focus on west Auckland landscape because of its rug- gedness. It's such a wild, intense landscape,'' Mr Taylor says. This is the Titirangi resident's first time exhibiting his work and he's a little nervous. Mr Prince agrees it can be difficult showing your finished product. It's putting a part of yourself on show,'' the Waiatarua resident says. People can be quite critical.'' The exhibition also features a painting Mr Prince did of the west coast of Ireland which he visited last year. He decided to add it to the exhibition because it was a nice twist'' having a picture of a different west coast. Spirit of the West opens on January 20 and runs until February 13. Both artists will be at Upstairs Gallery, Level One, Lopdell House, 418 Titirangi Rd on January 23 to meet visitors.
