Family Ties, by Fiona Groom For me, animal life and the natural world are my main focus. I draw inspiration from the expressions, colors and uniqueness of each animal subject. Using acrylics and stretched canvas my compositions slowly comes to life and in the end a new creation has established itself with its own story to tell.
Darn Fence,by Erica Evans “Darn Fence” was inspired by a trip to the Outback. A large feather was caught on a barbed wire fence and as there were emus in the area, it wasn’t too hard to match the feather with the bird. I felt a moment of concern for the emu being caught on the sharp barbs as he negotiated the fence with his chicks and could just imagine it cursing to itself as it ran away. When I’m working on a piece of my work, I’m attempting to tell a story. I hope my viewers will enjoy my interpretation of a moment in the life of an emu.
