    Colours of Australia

    This is a wall hanging I have called "Colours of Australia", from our red desert heart to our beautifull coastal rainforests.

    My Springer Celeste says hello too.

    Hope you like it.

    The pattern is in my head, I did not follow any pattern I just wanted to illustrate the "Colours of Australia" as I see it from our red desert heart, our bushfires and our beautifull rainforrest, my reward is that you enjoy my work.
