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.
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.
