Singing Maggie by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed.

Singing Maggie is an Australian Magpie with a very familiar and beautiful warbling song.

This is the fourth painting in this current series of Australian Native Birds.

Magpies can be found all over the world in different forms, and people are either taken by them or not. In some countries, they represent good luck and in some misfortune. In Australia, those who love them will often do so, because of their beautiful warbling song. I am one of these people. I also love their confidence and intelligence.

This series represents my selection of six Australian native birds that are significant to me and to many other bird-loving Australians. Their feathers are white. black or brown without much colour or hardly any. The background colours of bright blue and umber signify their freedom in our skies and the umber brings them back down to earth.

The technical focus is not particularly on detail, even though there is some, but predominantly on their expressions. Their eyes are larger than normal but represent windows to their souls.
