Dale very good, you seem to get better advanced each move you make.
Regards to you and Paul.
I always loved Pauls Hands he painted they were Beautiful.

November 16, 1998

In college, 3 years ago, they tried to tell me painting (especially people) was dead, but I am still in love with portraiture.
I can see you are, too, +Paul.
Nice work. I am inspired!

hello Dale I found your website looking at art and thought you have lots of imagination in your work, great stuff.
I live in Canada now but my Mum and Dad have a place at Mokau in Taranaki

I finally took the time to look at your sites.
Your comments about art and gender were very telling. I find people wondering if I am young[51], small [6'4"- 270lbs] etc. people make some quick assumptions, but in the end, it is the art.
I love to surprise people [can a large loud hairy man with a braided, beaded beard be literate, sensitive, creative?] Who can say? Only the shadow knows for sure! I've still got to come back and see some more of your stuff.

i liked your art.
do you call that "assemblage" ?
i ask because i work with a lot of materials, but mixing paints and tissues, but i+don't know the name for what i do.
it's good to know that there are people who see the things like that.
excuse me my poor english. bye.

Have just been admiring your interesting page Toby, wish all this had been around in the 50s when I was 11...
And Albie's Greytown show opens tomorrow; I have printed his page to show the multitudes. It looks great.
See you next month.

I happened to catch the quintet exhibit at the GB a wee while ago on an infrequent trip home to NP. Your assemblages were really cool, and long may you divert the web with the debris of the Okato area.
I'm temping at a PR firm in Wellington at the moment that does the visa gold art awards, and I thought I'd bookmark your website on their PC in then hope that something interesting might actually get into the visa golds next year. Keep up the junk.

Marsie N. Mo'o
so thrilled to find your web site on the internet
I am a NZer living in Hawaii and have had an interest in calligraphy and especially handmade unique paper. I have never seen flax made paper. Sounds really interesting. What info can you give me about any hand made paper that is made in NZ. I am interested in being a distributor of such if possible Would love to chat with you. Thanks.

Howdy from Tennessee! Didn't see any other U.S. "Southern" folk on the guestbook, so thought I'd sign.
Great site.
I always admire people who are not "cookie cutter" types.
We are homeschoolers. I would tell you our site, but you'd most likely find it preachy, and you would learn we are not so good at math. Music, though, we can do that!

Helen Bell-Palmer
I am amazed! Your technique is totally different to mine in which I use a travel iron and a sort of adaptation on a soldering iron. Your method gets an entirely different look.

Dear Dale:
"Don't Put Me on No Bleeding Pedestal Mate" seems to connect me with an earthy quality that I search for daily.
This piece also reminds me of my childhood, damaged and broken.

Hello Paul, Dale and Toby,
I am an Australian painter and was given your website by an artist friend, Melissa Wright. You probably know Melissa as she lived in New Zealand for several years and exhibited in your area. I have really enjoyed looking at your works. If you would like to view some of mine you can on http://www.geocities.com/Paris/LeftBank/6115
The website contains images from a couple of years ago and I hope to have things updated soon. If your ever over this way please come to Lennox Head. Both Melissa and I would be happy to greet you.
Thanks again for the pleasure of viewing such lovely work.

Great website! I did a search on 'puniho' and was very surprised that something came up. I particularly like the picture from Komene Beach of the mountain (a great view - nothing remotely similar here in London).

Hi I am ex pupil of Dales, you taught me 6th form maths at Spotswood College.
I am now about to complete my Bachelor of Education at Waikato University next week. As part of a computer in education course we were asked to find websites that we could use when teaching. I was looking for art web sites and that is how I found yours.
It's great and very interesting. Definately one I'll come back to when I have more time to browse.
Thanks for a great artistic experience,
from Julia Scrimgeour

Fantastic skies.
Excellent quality and technique.
Congratulations, I understand your approach as I am also an Architect and Painter.
I would love to see the real paintings! I have lived nearby in Sydney for a couple of years where I worked as an Architect in 1987-1989.
Good luck.

My sister Kerry Lilley gave me your site address ages ago and I have finally gotten around to looking at it - it is so well put together and really enjoyable to browse through - I can't wait to get to school tomorrow to show it to the Art teachers - I think they will love it.
Congratulations on a wonderful webpage.

How I have enjoyed your studio on the web! From Paul's Open face with complexity behind the eyes against a moonscape, to Dale's words about herself and her assemblages to the book binding--- all fascinating.

I really liked "all" of the work on your page. I consider Toby to be very lucky to be surrounded by all of the Art and Math. I think the realism shown in your paintings is very beautiful. Everyone I have ever talked to, that I can remember, would love to go to NZ. Your paintings and photos reinforce that desire. Too bad you're on the other side of the planet. Thanks again for sharing your work on the Net.
