Ready to flee....

Another True Ozzie..... Sold

This is another entry to the 'Ekka'.  I just love these appealing little creatures but unfortunately there are none on the island on which we now live. We lived in Canberra years ago and this little Brushtail Possum used to come down to the base of an oak tree in our back yard to be fed each night.  I fed her fruit and veg and she became quite familiar and would let me pat her.  On occasion she would open her pouch and I could insert my little finger and draw out a tiny, tiny limb. I felt very priviledged to be able to keep tabs on the infant which in no time at all accompanied its mother down the tree on her back.


  1. Hi Ellen - I just love where you're at with your paintings - good on you! Gardening is my passion at the moment and digging up the lawn for a potager garden - my extreme exercise. Moon gardening, companion planting - it's all so interesting. But you inspire me to get back into painting so thankyou.

    1. How nice to hear from you Wabi Sabi Woman and thank you for your comments. Moon gardening sounds intriguing! And it all sounds a bit healthier than standing and painting for hours upon end. Take care, Ellen
