Holmes - The Flying Emu by Kay Cunningham

Currently unavailable for purchase

Painted in acrylic and mounted on Zincalum this image depicts my remarkable friend, Holmes. Although most emus are flightless, Holmes noticed the propellor of the outboard motor one day and decided to wind his legs in a similar fashion. Suddenly he was flying! He now flies over most of outback Australia and relishes his new found freedom!

Original Sold.

Life is too short not to paint or be creative!
Life is so enhanced with a brush in my hand.

Life is, I hope, a joy for you.
