Yesterday after constantly checking weather forecasts I managed to find a few hours of sunshine and took another trip out to the Dryandra Woodlands.
I arrived just before noon and began painting straight away.
While painting I was lucky enough to take a few moments to get up close and personal with one of the locals - a busy little Echidna.
After following the little guy for a while as he searched for lunch I got back into the finishing touches of the mural.
The end of day was drawing near and at 5pm the mural was finished.
It was a pleasure to paint in such a unique and special place surrounded by friendly folk and acres and acres of bushland.
I want to say a massive thank to John the caretaker at the Lions Dryandra woodland Village for the great conversations and keeping me warm with cups of tea.
