Birds of the wheatbelt..



Last week I took a drive with my sisters to see the wildflowers along the way to Toodyay, one of my favourite country towns. A visit to the country is never without it's rewards. This time, apart from the wildflowers it was the discovery of a mural painted back in June by Kat and Nic. The colours of the red-capped robin and the rufous whistler are gorgeous and although these two birds are local to the area this was as close as I got to spotting them :) Every element of the mural has 'significant meaning and structure' to the area. Will show you more of the wildflowers tomorrow. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  15. That's pretty! I used to like to paint with areas of flat bright colour like that when I was a teenager - used to drive my poor art teacher crazy! (though he had taught Syd Barrett and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame so he was probably used to a little weirdness!)

  18. We have little red robins come through our garden in winter. I am always thrilled if I see one. I like the simplicity of this mural.
