This is another one I painted awhile ago, its done in acrylics, its a copy of Ainslie Roberts work Old Man Emu. There is quite a story to the painting as there are with most of his works on aboriginal folklore. If you would like to know of the stories to his works, just google him in and will find them.  This one actually ended up as being part of a payment to a lovely computer man, who fixed my computer the last time it was hacked and crashed. While we were taking about the repairs it came up he is a follower and supporter of the arts.  I told him I love painting and all art, and it ended up saving me a lot of money in computer repairs when he said he would like some of my work..  He also gave me some really good links to different artists works on the net.  He was a really beautiful person and incredibly helpful.

I’ve been spending most of the afternoon and night cleaning cupboards and drawers out, getting rid of a lot of the junk we tend to accumulate. Am going to see about moving,  my poor dog has started to chew all his nails, some of them he is really ripping at. I know it is from what has been going on, not being able to go out and spend time or play properly in his yard without being sprayed etc.  which has made him pretty crook at times, and wow it makes you agitated also, I know from first hand experience of it.  When I moved in here I was just so happy to have a home again, I had promised him one for a long time, and he so loved his yard. Niether of us get to go out there any more.   All animals should be happy.  He’s laying on the floor next to me at the moment, watching for a mouse we have in the house.  I  put a mousetrap in the cupboard with some cheese on it before, and went to check it a little while ago, I couldn’t believe it the ants have pinched all the cheese (each summer we have a really bad ant problem), never knew ants were so partial to cheese.  Put a bigger chunk in this time, hoping they can’t carry it away.   So I think we have some very happy well stocked up ants.
