This isn’t art related, but I just had to share this magpie with you all that I met today! It flew down and hung out with us for a bit, even followed us on our walk. This little one knows how to play the tourists 😂 #magpie#birb#funnyanimal
I’ve had a bit of writers block or whatever it is lately and I have been resisting painting.
A magpie walked in my studio yesterday and after a brief conversation with it,
I just had to paint one. This is it and it’s got me back in the zone. It’s FOR SALE if anyone is interested DM me.
Acrylic on canvas 510mm x 760mm .
This artwork I decided to call "Magpie in the winds". I was inspired to create this artwork in memory of my late grandfather. He always had a love for this Australian gem, and since his passing my family have found comfort every time one of us sees a Magpie. These beautiful birds will forever have a very special place in my heart.
🕸 HANDMADE DREAM CATCHERS 🕸
During the weekend I spent my time down the river collecting sticks and feathers and little nuts, as a little getaway from my mind and I decided to make them into something special!
Inspired by spider webs and the trees around the Mallee, I’ve made these dream catchers out of eucalyptus sticks and different feathers from rainbow lorikeets, yellow rosellas, mudlarks and tawny frog mouths, as well as some gum nuts, pine cones and banksia seed pods I shoved in my pockets.
Triangles are a symbol of strength, as well as a symbol used with the elements earth air fire and water. The triangle has been used in Egyptian lore, as a symbol of power, and the shape is used for healing and generating power into different realms and within the universe.
These guys are $20 each and I hope to make more sometime soon! #witchesofinstagram#smudgestick#spirituality#triangle#dreamcatcher#feathers#eucalyptus#sticks#pyramid#rainbowlorikeet#yellowrosella#magpie#mallee#merbein
