Introducing “Maggie – The Glitter Thief”. A much loved Australian Magpie accused of an innocent crime.
Magpies have a reputation as being magnets to shiny glittery objects out to steal jewellery and shiny ornaments from your garden. Apparently this story is a furphy in fact new research indicates that flashy objects repel magpies.
As an Australian Realistic Bird Artist I am always looking for interesting subjects to paint. The Australian Magpie is one of our nations much loved birds, renowned for their dawn chorus, curious personalities and backyard hijinks.
Thank to bird life photographer Anton Puzey for graciously providing the reference photo as inspiration for this oil painting.
