Wetlands..



I was immediately drawn to the colours and content in the gorgeous artworks here on the walls of the Oxford Hotel on Oxford Street in Leederville. 'Wetlands' was commissioned by the City of Vincent back in 2015 and painted by multidisciplinary Perth based artist Chris Nixon. Egrets are an integral member of the wetland bird family around the Perth area, there may be a unmentioned egret in one of the photos from yesterday's walk around Lake Monger :) Gorgeous isn't it 💚 Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. That is a beautiful one! I love the way it blends in so well on the front of that hotel. It seems so natural to be there.

  3. Unusual pub painting. Makes a nice change from the often garish advertising.

  6. They are wonderful birds. I remember seeing one of the first Egrets to nest in the UK about 25 years ago. Now Little Egrets are relatively common and Great White Egrets and Cattle Egrets have stated to appear too. All because of global warming I suppose. I admire the way the artist has conveyed so much atmosphere with just a limited range of colours.

  7. Beautiful! I saw one here, too, and wanted to take a pic, it was sadly too fast. Not fast enough, though, to be not spotted by also Ingo who hates them as they catch the fish before he can (or could, those times are luckily over).
    Yes, Leederville sure is a true heaven for murals, thank you for taking us there back then! xox
