Painted in oils “Waratah” Awarded 2nd Place in international Wildlife competition held by International Artist Magazine USA.

It is always a great honour and very validating to receive an award, particularly when the artwork is jury judged against incredible competition.

“Waratah” is an oil painting depicting a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets sitting on one of Australia’s most iconic flowers, the floral emblem for New South Wales.

Acknowledgement to photographer David C. Simon for graciously providing the reference photo used as inspiration for this oil painting.
