My teacher had brought in a book of Australian birds, and the cover bird was so cute that I had to try painting it. It’s a Variegated Fairy Wren, and can be found in many parts of Australia.
It’s been awhile since I visited Oatley Park baths, but I have enough photos and memories to recreate the scene.
My father-in-law requested a poppy or two since he marches on Anzac and Remembrance days. I knitted him this poppy that he can wear.
