All in A Row by Sally Ford

Pastel painting 40cm x 30cm
This is a little family of fairy wrens huddled on a fence. There are three babies and their Dad.
I adore these birds as they are a great subject and probably my favourite bird to draw. Native to Australia.
Many thanks to Pete Pevy (PPV247) for his wonderful photography to use as a reference.

I love that art can make people feel many emotions. I enjoy seeing people laugh at my art as I feel comedy and laughter crosses all boundaries.
Life is full of fun and colour and I hope that my artworks can convey this. Enjoy!
