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.

This oil and acrylic Australian modern art work by Merry Sparks is of a mother red robin bird leaving a foreign nest filled with chicks in a forest

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.

Our Secret

We Suck

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.

WTF
