Gotta Love Tawney Frogmouths.

Tawney Frogmouths, for me, are some of the loveliest, most inquisitive and quirky birds.  As my followers know, I paint a lot of them in so many ways.  They are enchanting. Lately I have found that the birds I love look awesome on black gessoed canvas and lend themselves well to be portrayed as miniatures. …

Bushman’s Clocks

As a wildlife artist, I only paint the birds and animals I have been blessed to see.  These beautiful kookaburras visit my garden every day.  Their noisy alarms at dawn, (and often earlier) are a joy to hear.  They are the most interesting models as they sit so still for their photos to be taken,…

As we were leaving on the ferry I was taken by some groups of pylons marking the route.  They were in different combinations.  Each had different shapes and colours with…
