This painting was inspired by the various blackbird babies who appear in our garden every spring and perch here and there - looking delightfully fat and fluffy - while waiting for their overworked parents to bring them the next meal.

I wanted to portray these two as slightly flustered and agog at this interesting and colourful new world they have landed in! The butterfly is a yellow admiral - these are also yearly visitors to our garden and one of my favourite NZ butterflies.

I chose the soft yellow colour for the background to portray the brightness and new life of spring and to compliment the warm red and brown tones of the rest of the painting.
