A Little Bit of Humour

Can an ant feed five echidnas???!

I hope that my latest painting gives you a little chuckle.

Dinner for Five???

Echidnas have spines like a porcupine, a beak like a bird, a pouch like a kangaroo, and lays eggs like a reptile. They are a member of the monotremes, along with the platypus, an order of egg-laying mammals. They are a small, solitary mammal native to Tasmania and Australia. They are usually 30 to 40 cm long and weigh between 2 to 4.5 kilos.

I love the way they walk, they waddle (on the ground). They don’t climb trees or swing from gum nuts, but the beauty of having artistic licence is that you can create whimsical and humorous scenes like this. 

 Quality A-4 and A-3 sizes Limited Edition print runs of 100 of “Dinner for Five???”, numbered, titled and signed by me, the artist are available at: https://pjpaintings.com/collections/realistic-animals/products/dinner-for-five  and the original painting will soon be available at Tiger ina Papera Unique Woodcraft Gallery, 7/81 Salamanca Place, Hobart, when it exits from the framers. https://au.placedigger.com/tiger-ina-papera-unique-woodcraft731112233.html

I hope that “Dinner for Five?” gave you a little chuckle this morning.

Cheers, from Patricia (PJ) Hopwood-Wade
