Faces for Tag Tuesday


 For Tag Tuesday's theme FACES , I am revisiting 4 of the 29 tags I drew and painted for the 29 Faces Challenge in February. These are my Bush Babies inspired by the May Gibbs' characters. Earlier this year, I went to an exhibition at the NSW State Library in Sydney, celebrating 100 years since the first publication of May Gibbs' books - children's fantasy stories about the Gumnut babies and friends who live in the Australian bush and this has reignited my interest in Australian literary folklore. My favourite book is still "The Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie". The opening plea from May Gibbs  is still relevant for our environment  today "‘Humans Please be kind to all bush creatures and don’t pull flowers up by the roots’.
