Autumnal Tails IV


Original Watercolour Fantail Artwork. Framed at 44.5 cm wide and 32 cm high

Seeking a Fantail Watercolour Artwork.  Autumnal Tails IV depicts two fantails fluttering among the autumn leaves.

Fantails, a common NZ native bird loved by many, are fun, friendly, and fragile.

They are lively, curious, and constantly trying to get into the studio. I spend far too much time shooing them out as no one wants fantail poop on their artwork!

Fantails remind me that no matter what life throws at us, we just need a few friends, some fun, and a friendly personality to get by in this life.

Autumn is a great time for the fantails. It’s still warm and there is plenty of food available while they are no longer working hard building nests, mating, and raising young. They appear to spend this season feeding, playing and having fun before the rigours of the cold months decend on them.

My artwork is created in response to the NZ wildlife, birds, and critters surrounding my life and studio on Hinewai Reserve. I am inspired by nature’s resilience and the critters who live and breed here. I create to protect our critters one artwork at a time.
