We visited the Mount Buffalo and Falls Creek areas last September and were delighted to see so many Flame Robins. They seemed to find food in the snow which I guess could have been insects of some kind. One of the particular aims of the visit was to see the Snow Gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora) which are truly one of the worlds most amazing trees. The branches have colourful longitudinal stripes like broad pin-stripes of pale yellows and grey/blue bark and the occasional green or red bark. The background view is from the Mt Buffalo area.
This is a watercolour painting on 300gsm Arches Hot Pressed (smooth) Paper. The original image measures approx. 35cm x 45cm high.
The Original can be obtained from the artist at this stage.
Unframed price $845.

Visiting Aspects Gallery of Kings Park, Perth, as the resident artist for a few days in September had some unexpected spin-offs. While I met lots of new people and a few long term (but unknown) collectors of my paintings, I received a request for commission paintings. This commission including three paintings of Australian magpie and the cute WA legend- the Quokka.
Within a month of returning home I received yet another request and this time for three paintings of Australian parrots. The couple in this instance had fond memories of the smaller parrots from childhood as so took the opportunity to decorate their home in WA with paintings of the Western Rosellas and Scarlet-chested Parrots with two more paintings to come of Turquoise Parrots and Bourke’s Parrot. Producing Australian Native Bird Art is a lot of fun and its very satisfying to meet other people who love these birds.
You can see the images of the Scarlet Chested Parrot and Western Rosella paintings here:
