Playing with Driftwood again

Ive been working on some of the pieces of driftwood from my collection in my studio. These pieces of wood are collected whilst on my daily beach walks. Unfortunately the number of pieces that I find are diminishing at the moment.  It will take another huge storm to provide me with fresh stock.

However here are my three latest pieces.

I have also included some images of other small Australian Bird paintings  I did in this series for your consideration. Let me know what you think of them.  Thanks.

New Etsy Shop for Children

I have just opened up my new AnimalFaces  Shop on Etsy which will feature animal art aimed initially for children’s nurseries. When you have a moment please visit and let me know what you think of it, just clink on the link below

As everyone knows I love painting animals, especially Australian flora and fauna.  My friends are starting to call me the bird lady!

So for fun, I thought I would invent a Family of Australian Wood Ducks.  Where we lived on a canal, in our last house, we had these cheeky little fellas who used to swim up to our boundary and we greatly enjoyed feeding them and their little babies.

Working on my McDuck Family

So I have created the McDuck Family.

Please meet Mr and Mrs McDuck and their 3 children – Tilly, Ellie and Liam.   Mum and Dad are very proud of their children; Tilly loves to shop (she particularly likes shoes and is always adding to her collection), Ellie loves the beach and is wearing her new polka dot bikini and Liam spends all his free time down at the skate park.

As times goes I imagine that I will introduce more members of the family eg Grandma and Grandpa and I’m sure that as the children grow, they will and have boy and girlfriends, get married, have children!

Over the years I see myself adding to these family portraits and maybe maybe writing a story about their lives.

I hope that children become to love them and would like them on the walls of their bedrooms.

I look forward to your feed back.

Good morning sunshine.

Good morning sunshine

Your radiant rays welcome the day

Orange hues chase night skies away

Your warmth revives life anew

Caress the sky into hues of blue.

Good morning sunshine.

Flowers and buds seek out your light

Morning birds celebrate with songs so bright

Each morning let us praise with voice

Contemplate and reverently rejoice

Giver of life – good morning sunshine.

 

The photograph of this beautiful sunrise was taken this week on my early morning walk.  The photo has been digitally altered to make it an interesting image.
