Broken Creek, Numurkah

A glorious day!

The coot bob on the water honking to each other

The warm sun dapples the river

The green aquatic plants glow

How blessed am I!

Broken Creek, Numurkah, 30th April 2009 

The Eurasian Coot is a small water bird common in Australia.

The first picture was drawn with soft pastels. The second picture is based on the same river scene. It combines knitting and painting.
