I have just become a Little Penguin warden at Manly. Tonight is my first evening and I am very excited to see these beautiful little birds. I have already started drawing them.
I have some images in an exhibition in Avalon. They are all of birds, seagulls mostly. I love seagulls in all their audaciousness and their glorious red legs. I painted the skies before the skies were grey.
