The Australian Koala Foundation has announced that Koalas are now functionally extinct due to deforestation. So sad!
When I was in Australia I managed to see one up close and it fascinated me.I remember my father brining me a stuffed Koala Bear back from a trip when I was a child and I was fascinated from then on.
I always thought they lived throught Australia but infact they live in Queensland – the east coast only. My Australian friends call them “Drop Bears” because they are known to fall out of the trees drunk from eating all that eucalyptus. Wild!
This painting was the accumulation of my impression and feelings about Australia
