The Nut Crackers
This painting was created when I was living in the Northern Rivers where there are Macadamia Nut farms everywhere. Yep, I was surrounded by Nuts...and it made life really interesting. Hidden inside the paint are the girls cracking nuts with their high heels, and the native birds to the area, called "Spangled Drongos" yes this is their actual name. Also hidden inside is the musical notes & lines in the dress, stockings and gloves as they flow with the rhythm of life.
