Artist's Description

Thought this image might amuse you!!! This is ‘Mervyn’ (named after Mervyn Hughes, the cricketer)!!! This is the interior of my studio (please excuse the mess) and on the easel is Drought Relief. The studio is an old Victorian two-room school house which I bought several years ago and then had it moved to our property, where it lives in the middle of the bush. The plan is to turn it into a gallery/studio one of these years, but you can’t rush these things!!!!! You may notice that Merv is holding some gum leaves. I had a large container of them strategically placed for reference material, but Merv discovered them and decided they needed rearranging! He is such a helpful assistant! He has also managed to demolish several pastel pencils and has done some rather intricate wood carving with his beak on a couple of the floorboards! This is still a ‘work in progress’! He is such a character and quite talkative when he is in the right mood! He calls the dogs, yells at other cockatoos, asks me what I am doing all the time and he calls me ‘darling’!

Since I posted this image Merv laid an egg, thus turning “himself” into a “herself”! She is gradually coming to terms with her identity crisis!!!
