Pop Art Skullduggery No 2 by Australian Artist Merry Sparks

Skullduggery No 2

How can something so macabre become so beautiful […]

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

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.
