Embrace the Blues
The blues of nature, often seen in sky, flowers, birds & butterflies are all beautiful.
Why are we people so scared of the blues?
It is okay to be sad in moderation, it's a normal contrast to happy.
You would tire of paintings if they were only bright sunny yellow all the time.
I had a wonderful day painting, completing this Superb fairy wren painting in acrylics on canvas using my traditional oil painting fine art techniques.
You can purchase these from small paint enhanced cards to print greeting cards, through to decor and museum quality prints.
This painting is the first in a series of blue wren works I have sketched and completed in acrylic paint, using traditional fine art oil painting techniques.
The superb fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus), also known as the superb blue-wren or colloquially as the blue wren, has been voted as Australia's most loved bird.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
