An intimate scene of a mama yellow-tailed rock wallaby and her joey. I love this moment that captures the gentle look of her kiss on their tiny forehead, but the reality was quite different! My references for this artwork were taken at Hunter Valley Wildlife Park, where the joey was wriggling around, hopping in and out of the pouch and bouncing around like an exuberant toddler. I feel like this 'kiss' was more like a 'either stay put and stay still, or get out!'
