                The title of this painting is a contraction of:

                Three Ubiquitous New Zealand Plants, which are

                Tussock grass, Harakeke [or New Zealand flax]

                and Toi Toi [a New Zealand variety of Pampas Grass].

                These wild plants grow in a wide variety of locales,

                from ocean shores to mountain slopes,

                are well adapted to cope with dry conditions, thin 

                soils and constant winds - and yet are beautiful

                in their rippling movement. This scene was 

                inspired by the coast of Kaikoura, in South Island
