While I am still painting, painting, painting, there are no completed works to photograph right now. Soooooo I thought I'd share some photos I've taken in my backyard. Having a large block of land is a joy, and occasionally a burden. While it takes a bit of maintenance there are sometimes wonderful surprises when you least expect it.
Such as these gorgeous funghi:
Some research revealed that the second photo is of 'bridal veil funghi'... an apt name don't you think?
Another joy is the proliferation of native birds. I feed them wild bird seed. Only enough to tempt them back, but not enough to sustain them, so that they continue to find their natural sources of food.
While this is not a 'great' photo, I keep it aside because I love the movement and think it might make the basis for a future painting. I call it "Galah Confrontation".
Ah well, back to the studio. There is much to do.
