Flora Scales in a letter to Anne Kirker, 1975, held in Auckland Art Gallery Research Library, ref. Scales, H F V correspondence 2A:
“It is interesting to hear about the exhibition of New Zealand Women Painters and it is good of you to include some of mine and you do not owe the least apology for taking them. Mr Colin McCahon would seem enthusiastic in anything he undertook and am sure he will make the most of my work [referring to Scales's imminent Auckland City Art Gallery exhibition, 1975-1976, of which McCahon was the initiator]. I left Dunedin about five weeks ago where it is cool to come here permanently – the climate here [in Auckland] is lovely.”
