My little baby Koala and his Mom are completed, and will be glazed Wednesday. Ready to ship by next Tuesday. This painting is very colorful and brilliant. I wanted to convey the colors of the Eucalyptus tree. In Southern California there are thousands of Eucalyptus trees, and if you have ever stood under one, you might have seen purple, green and violet colors in the leaves. The bark is facinating the way it swirls and sheds in the summer.
The baby Koala lives in it’s mother’s pouch for five months and is blind when it is born. Koalas live to be around 20 years old, and primarily live on the East Coast of Australia. I hope you enjoy…This painting is currently available for bid on Ebay. Click on the photo to link to the auction.
