In 1948 Canterbury artist Olivia Spencer Bower spent time at Rāwene recovering from an illness. There she made the acquaintance of local figures, including charismatic Dr George McCall Smith, and produced a series of drawings and paintings. This watercolour captures the moody atmosphere of the Hokianga.
