Painting Description

Stunning acrylic painting of a Kookaburra in Flight where vibrant textured colour has been applied to represent the plumage of the birds. This painting will bring the Australian Bush sounds of the Laughing Kookaburra right into your room to brighten up your day.

There is something very special about Kookaburras. I love their soft fluffy plumage and beautiful big eyes which have a cheeky look to them. They have the most raucous call which sounds like belly laughter and may be the first sound you hear, often at dawn, as you awaken to a bright new day. We once had one we christened ‘Patch’ because he was blind in one eye and half his beak was missing. He would come everyday to be fed and we felt we were helping him survive until we learned that he went around the whole neighborhood and had been known to steal whole steaks off barbeques.

Please read my poem to learn more about these charismatic birds. Kookaburras Laughing

Original Artwork Creation Process

Many hours go into creating an original painting.

  • The canvas is stretched
  • Canvas is primed
  • Design is created from photos which have been taken.
  • Plan is developed so that there is a logical step by step from background painting to finished painting.
  • Design is sketched onto the canvas before painting and the application of texture paste using stencils and/or palette knives is performed.
  • Many layers of painting plus a final coat protective varnish are all done with love and care.

This is why original paintings are valuable investments plus the fact that there is only one unique original. However once the original is sold you may buy high quality archival beautiful Fine Art Reproductions.


All artworks, both Originals and Fine Art Reproductions, are carefully wrapped in customized packaging to ensure protection during shipping.


Original painting will be packaged within 2 to 3 business days. Once your parcel is with Australia Post please allow 3 - 6 business days for standard shipping (1 - 2 days for express) to all major Australian cities (slightly longer for rural areas). Total time from order placement to delivery to your door will be up to 14 business days.
All items are shipped by registered post with Australia Post which may be affected by COVID19, with slightly increased delivery times.

This painting measures 122 x 61 cm and is painted on an unframed quality deep edged canvas ready to hang.
