These charming small birds foraged in my garden on the first day of spring as I sat beside my above ground garden beds giving them a seasonal tidy. It was a beautiful day, made all the more enjoyable by the company of the Superb Blue Wren family.
I painted them with the backdrop of my blue Dutch irises and white stock, in watercolours on watercolour paper.

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.
