Carolyn Page has sent us an Australian nature mural & a joyful study of its nature, just in time for the Vernal Equinox.
Carolyn says, ” It is above a travelator and smacks of all things Australian.”
“I’d love to highlight a few of the images such as our delightful Kookaburra; an Auzzie Icon.”
“Our beautiful Parrots, of which there are many and varied with beautiful colours; include this beauty.”
“Our Wattle Trees in bloom look glorious lining our major highways during late winter to early spring.”
“The wall art image doesn’t show their true high yellow colour, but, I was so pleased to see them highlighted as Australiana.”
“They are the little round bubble-like images below the Koala.”
“Then there’s the Banksia; a native plant so attractive in flower:”
“Australia just isn’t Oz without the Eucalyptus Tree’s Gumnuts acclaimed within author, Illustrator and cartoonist, Mae Gibbs’ children books, including ‘Meet Snugglepot and Cuddlepie’, her lovable bush characters.”
“Once again the wall art composition doesn’t highlight their true essence. However, the Eucalyptus Tree’s Gumnuts are, once again, iconic to Australia:”
“This little fellow is hard to see in the wall art, however, he is there hiding as usual. The Australian Possum is a nocturnal creature, though; he can be heard (if not seen) during the day scampering amongst the trees.”
“(Not to be confused with the Opossum, the Possum lives in trees and keeps very much to himself. He can be ‘tamed’ to a degree with enticing titbits to eat.)”
“Next is a little Golden Bell Frog frog.”
“He too is almost hiding. You can just see him in the lower right hand corner!”
“And last, but not least, is our cuddly Koala. He really is the cutest thing!”

“Here is an impression of our ‘future’ Mall Indoor/Outdoor Garden Restaurant Area. I’m so impressed… :)It seems Green Hill will be double celebrating the arrival of spring this year!”

Resa, I so love birds and Nature, and the colors are gorgeous! Always embracing you in prayers! Hugs and blessings my dear sister!
I love adore this mural from Australia, and am very happy Carolyn sent it in! Great to see you, Wendell. HUGS!
Maybe a trip ‘down under’ is just what the doctor ordered, Wendell… 🙂
With all your incredible journeys to exotic places, Kelly; I know you’d love us, too… 🙂
Absolutely incredible! Gorgeous pictures. Australia is filled with color and lovey beings. Beautiful post.
Yes, there are so many beautiful animals and plants we don’t get to see here! I am lucky to have had this submitted by Carolyn!
You’d love Australia, Georgiann; I think our natural beauty of flora and fauna would be just up your alley. I can imagine you playing with Koalas and Wombats… Hahaaaa… 🙂
Resa – so beautiful, colorful – wow!!
I agree! Thank you to Carolyn for sending it in!
So happy you enjoyed this little piece of Australia, mihrank… It really is a ‘wow’ country with beautiful flora and fauna… 🙂
It’s wonderful to see a little of Australia upon your blog, Resa; it makes my little heart sing! 🙂
Thank You for allowing something ‘a little different’ from your norm to be showcased.
And it looks gorgeous.. 🙂
Thank you, Carolyn! 😀 It is a wonderful work of public in mural form. I am proud and happy to present it on my blog. I’m also happy you like the way it looks. 😀 I think there should be art in all malls. 😀 Feel free to weigh in on any of the comments. Don’t wait for me! xoxoxo
Big Hugs and Kisses being sent your way, Dear Resa…. 🙂
That’s one big mural! Love the soft colors and the way the artist worked in the nature of the land.
It’s big and beautiful! I love that it teaches nature,organically, through art.
Psssst ….. I think someone is talking about you.
“Love the soft colors and the way the artist worked in the nature of the land.”
Frank, that is precisely why I couldn’t resist snapping a pic. It arrived at the Mall only very recently. I was so taken with it my first thought was Resa. I’m so pleased she thought it worthy of a post… 🙂
Hooray … we are on the same page. 🙂 … Meanwhile, I noticed that Resa also comes to your mind when seeing a mural. That darn lady works on my mind, too!
Haha… She’s got the ‘angle’ on us all…. 😉 😉
… and to think she doesn’t even know we are talking about her.
What? 😀 I can’t hear a thing?
Adorable & so much talent!
Yes, & I wonder who painted it?
I’ll have to investigate, Resa… I’m popping up to the Mall to have brunch with ‘the daughter’ this morning. I’ll seek the answer to this!!! 🙂
Can only agree with you, Cindy… So pleased you think so.. 🙂
The mural seems to be in the breeze which I love, it feels more effective for this moving, a still life that is restless.
What a great observation, Ste J; I love that! I think the artist would too. 😉
Gasp! Such beauty …truly Australia . I just can’t imagine the talent and work that went into
This. Thank you Ressa, I will definitely be visiting this blog! ♥️
You’re welcome, Holly! It’s always exciting to get street art or murals from anywhere in the world. I’m thrilled you love this art form, and I love yours!!! ❤
I am always excited by the beautiful wall art, more so by your gorgeous gowns, you are so talented Resa.
This particular wall art just blew me away, I love exotic art, anything oriental with its delicate beauty so when I saw this I was stunned at how lovely it is…and on a wall!
Thank you for sharing it ❤
You are so right about the beautiful wall art, and Resa’s gorgeous gowns; they are incredible!
The artwork does look oriental; it is so soft, I just couldn’t resist it. 🙂
It is so beautiful. 😊
Carolyn Page captured such beautiful detail of nature and its creatures.
Resa, I miss talking to you…and many hugs from me to you. 🙂
You are so sweet, Charlie. I know how enthralled you are by art of all ilks. 😀 Soon, there will be another Street Poetry post. The temperature is hovering around 0C – 32 F. Once we hit +5C, it will be time, as I can stay outside quite awhile at that point. Hope you like the poems I wrote as comments on your blog! xo
🙂 yay!!! Can’t wait.
I love the poems you wrote. Please do more poems. You are such a talented writer and artist. 🙂
When I do the Street Poetry Door… Idea! Will write you a mail! 😀
Awesome! Can’t wait! I’m excited and nervous…but mostly happy. 🙂
Thank You, Charlie; it really is a gorgeous mural of nature in Australia. And thanks to Resa, others, like yourself, get to enjoy it too… 🙂
🙂 Bless you Carolyn Page. 🙂
The little koala and the possum, so cute!!
I know! I’d love to see a koala in real life! 😀
They are, Carolee, so sweet. I’ve seen the Koala in the wild/bush, and even in the outer fringes of suburbia scrambling between trees where they live eating the eucalyptus leaves. The Possum, on the other hand, lives anywhere there are trees, almost. He can be heard scrambling across roofs in the evening when he’s active. Nature is so fascinating! 🙂
These are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing them
I adore them and it was my pleasure and honor to share this gift from Carolyn!
Thanks for taking the time to comment; it is so appreciated. Resa is a marvel.. 🙂
A fantastic mural – there’s so much to take in from it!! I had not heard of Wattle Trees before so YES glad they were included. I assume they’re only in Australia? We have cherry blossoms over here! I’m so glad for nature’s liveliness in spring, by the way. Great collaboration, Resa and Carolyn! ❤ 🙂
Hi Christy.. 🙂
The Wattle Tree is native to Australia, though it is now grown in many countries; even considered a weed in some countries because it ‘multiplies’ quickly and easily. However, Christy, it is iconic to Oz and lines many of our highways. It looks gorgeous.
Yes, we also have the Cherry Blossoms here, too; they are quite spectacular!
Happy Spring to you. Of course we are entering Autumn, which is so welcome after a very hot summer here in The Hunter Valley… ❤
How cute, love the mural and photos with explanations. Australia is still on my bucket list.
Cool! Will Benji go?
It would be for a vacation, so Mr Benji would have to stay with a pet sitter 🙂
I’m sure you wouldn’t regret this bucket list destination, Anarette! We have a great many things you’d find of interest… and we’d welcome you with open arms.. 🙂
Everything seems to blend perfectly. I was looking for a boomerang!
Thank you, Carolyn and Resa.
Oh Sidran, I completely understand your point. 🙂 I believe the artist concentrated on flora and fauna; those things that are completely natural to Australia, so to speak.
I’ve been advised there is an artwork being commissioned at present that will be of an Aboriginal nature, perhaps an Aboriginal face! I’m hoping it will be inspirational enough to be accepted by Resa for this fabulous blog of hers… 🙂
Me Too!!! LOL! I can hardly wait to see it!
Thank you. Now I see it the way it has to be seen.
Looking forward to the aboriginal art.
