Pastel on watercolour paper…..50cm x 30cm
Adore fairy wrens and these are three babies together.They are always outside my windows fluttering around. So very hard to catch an image of them. I have created a similar work before, they are waiting for their Dad to return. Thanks to Pete Pevy (PPV247) for his fantastic image to use as reference and inspiration.

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!
