Wild Things

Just recently I painted my parent in-laws truck ready for a trip to the outback. I couldn’t have asked for better working conditions being constantly offered cakes, snacks and tea. One of the perks of working for family.

Rod and Glenda spend a lot of time up north in beautiful places like Karajini camp hosting so were keen to have some Western Australian desert animals painted on the sides of their truck. Their favourites are the spectacular looking Desert Perentie and Olive Python.

I learned a lot about the two animals while painting them and looking up different images of them on the internet. They both have beautiful patterns and colours on them especially the Perentie. I can’t wait to visit the desert again and try to spot some (from a distance…they’re a little scary).
