A few weeks ago, I woke one morning with the urge to paint an echidna on silk, then spent a couple of days engaged with the painting. Here is the result with the original painting made up into a very special cushion, finished with gorgeous organic Hungarian green hemp from Margaret River.

Late last year, I actually met a little echidna when I was staying at a friend’s bush block and I got to spend a little time observing him/her. Meeting an echidna in quiet bushland is a special experience and the memory added something special to the work I think.
