Someone's trash... by donnaquinn Someone's trash... by donnaquinn
Someone's trash is someone else's treasure, as the saying goes. Some swamp hens reckon this abandoned car is an ideal spot to hang out (or to build a nest).

Painted in November last year, for an art contest on the theme of wetland management (I wasn't shortlisted).

Acrylic, 40 x 57.5 cm.

Wow! This would be a good place for little babies to crawl around on. Good job!

I second Peachfuzz in that you've done a wonderful job making this ordinarily sad scene (trash in a wetland) into a hopeful scene. Beautiful painting!

Thank you very much. You exactly expressed what I was trying to portray- although some species are highly vulnerable to human impacts, others can be more resilient.
