Wacky first! by Kay Cunningham

My first attempt to capture the fun and spirit of the Australian icon – the emu.
Too many years ago to remember exactly when I painted it.
Came across it the other day and thought other bubblers might get a giggle!
It sold and I still love painting them!

Was probably on Arches paper 300g with AS watercolours.

In Art Close Up!

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.
