More Kookaburra's

Kookaburras. Living in Amanda's living room now.
It's 6 o'clock and the Kookaburra's are going off, all calling to each other to finish up for the night. Such a domestic and comforting sound. I think this maybe it for my Kookaburra fettish for now. These two babes are painted in acrylic, quite lightly so the collaged background shows through. It is a sewing pattern scrunched up in the background with my new favourite red on top. Heaps of fun.

Mixed media fun

We have a lot of Kookaburra's on the farm and I love their early morning chatter. I came across a couple of Kookaburra feathers the other day and was inspired to capture their cheekyness. This is acrylic with pen and ink over collaged music on cartridge paper.
