Welcome to my blog

I have loved painting and art from a very early age , but only taken my art seriously in the last two and half years. I paint in oils and my passion is Australian birds, I spend a lot of time watching birds and their antics and try to put it on canvas. I also paint portraits , and the odd landscape. I studied art for a time in Tony Moffits online art school and improved tremendously as a artist. I paint every day , and try to improve with every painting I do. I only use good quality canvas and oil paints. All paintings on this site are for sale, please feel free to contact me on southern_skies@hotmail.com
Thank you so much for dropping by.

This is a painting of three Red-Rumped Parrots, they are a brilliantly coloured bird , but very shy, they are found in open woodland, in inland south-east Australia, spreading towards the coast and into Queensland. They nest in hollows of eucalypts, and can have up to four chicks.
It is oil on canvas. 30cm height, 40cm width.
