Wallaby Joey features a wildlife of an Australian artwork by Ryn Shell painted in acrylic paint on canvas. My grateful thanks to photographer Philip Woodhouse for allowing me to use one of his nature photographs as the reference for this artwork.
I've actually been afraid to paint this Joey. The reason is, Philip Woodhouse is the brilliant nature photographer who gave me permission to paint some of his superb wallaby images.
What was I thinking to attempt to paint what was already perfect?
Anyhow, I'm working on my short series of wallaby paintings at the moment.
My joey in pouch is starting to come alive on the canvas for me.
Red-necked Wallaby joeys spend about 9 months in the the pouch.

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.
