Come and see my Bower by Donna Macarone

This is an oil painting on canvas 60×60cm.
It’s of the Great Bower Bird. It was making it’s display nests in my friends garden.
Someone nearby must have been building a shed, because the nest had a huge number of green colourbond roofing screws in it.

I have basically sketched all my life, In 2007 I descided it was time to get over my fobia of paint (sketching was easy, all I had to do was sharpen my pencil and go) painting was a whole nother thing, you had to take time out and mix your colours and when you ran out you had to make more AHHHHH…….
