Family Bunk Beds
This is my painting of a wombat family enjoying an afternoon siesta among shady gum leaves, with the help of a light breeze gently swaying the hammocks, as they happily drift off into a relaxed slumber. Each of the young one's hammocks are decorated by gumnut mobiles for their entertainment pleasure.
I've seen and photographed wombats many times in Tasmania's wilderness. There's nothing cuter than seeing a baby wombat running! They're so cute. They are gentle animals and I try to capture that gentleness and calmness in my paintings of wombats.
Wombats are marsupials native to Tasmania and the mainland of Australia. They are herbivores. Female wombats give birth to a single young in the spring and the young leave the pouch after about six months.
"Family Bunk Beds" is an unlimited print edition, printed on 310gsm William Turner watercolour paper with archival inks by Full Gamut, a Fine Art Printer in Hobart, Tasmania. The paper has the same texture as the paper I paint on. No wonder so many people ask me if the print is an original because the colour and textured paper is of such high quality!
