Three's A Crowd 2 Popart painting by Merry Sparks

Three’s A Crowd No 2

Urban skylines would be so much more attractive without hideous power poles but aside from the obvious, they serve two other purposes – a perch for birds and a support for a pair of shoes signalling that a drug dealer is nearby.  Three must be a crowd in my neighbourhood as the crows try to untie the shoelaces.

Gobo Optic Light Filter Eagle by Merry Sparks

Australia Zoo and Merry Sparks Australian Pop Art paintings

Australia Zoo

I adore our Australian animals, and I adore my visits to Australia Zoo for BIG photography days.  I’ve been in amongst some pretty cute, adorable, furry animals but Australia Zoo worships a few slippery reptiles and the mighty big Croc too.  I’ll keep to the other side of the fence from these thanks. For an awesome, […]

This Australian aerial landscape oil painting set in the Bunya Mountains and it is about a mother bird leaving the nest in search of food, by Merry Sparks

Nesting In The Bunyas

In my dreams I can fly, and when I think I’m about to fall, I stretch my wings so wide that I am suspended high into the air – just like Jonathon Livingston Seagull. You will see that I have a passion for anything that whizzes past me in flight. I wonder what it is like constantly viewing the land as bird might – hovering, watching, ready to swoop – free to go wherever you please. Free to escape.

Whoops, Wrong Nest

I have a fascination for weightlessness, complete freedom and the beauty of wings in various forms, because hosted to them, are beautiful creatures often displaying colours of the rainbow. The transparency of an insect wing is just that – coloured like a rainbow.

Scrutiny

What are we doing to our environment? Do we have too much of an influence over the slow destruction of our beautiful world? Why is it that as the most intelligent species, we leave behind a trail of destruction in our wake? One day we might self-implode. I have too many questions and no tangible answers.
