It has a standard white timber frame with a backing board and is strung ready to hang.
"My passion for Australian Eucalyptus gumnuts and gum blossoms began in my childhood with May Gibbs' delightful stories of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie and their wonderful adventures. The gumnut babies had their hair, hats and skirts modelled on eucalypt flowers.
In this work the mystical background enhances the vibrant colours of the blossoms, you can almost smell the fragrant flowers & eucalypt scents. I hope this painting will bring back memories of happy days and Australian story time".
