Hi again, I now realize that you run a bird rescue.  I still have not read your bio since I do not want to loose my place in your wonderful gallery. I really like this image.  Is this another digital painting?  It's wonderful, the bright colours are fabulous.  I like the unusual angle of the bird's head.  The blue works also, it's a nice contrast point.  The parallel green lines above the bird's head give a hard look which collides with the softness of the bird and creates movement.  The bird's body actually appears to be soft.  You've made a very visually appealing piece of art :)

This is Kiwi...She is a Milligold Macaw which is  hybrid of a Military and Blue and Gold Macaws. She is a mess at 4 years old. She is a rescue that was turned in to rescue because she was to loud. She has gone flying with us but since she was 3 years when she learned to fly as a older bird she doesnt recall well and we only take her with inside the barracks. It has been a problem at the house now as she will not stay put. She wants to fly every where and get into everything. She has been adopted by me!!!!!!!

I once had a lovebird named Mookie who was very vocal, as they tend to be.  He thought I was his mate and so every time I spoke he started chirping, answering me.  You can imagine what that was like when he was sitting on my shoulder and I started to speak and he would let out a loud squawk after I had forgotten he was even there!  He also gave me 'presents' by regurgitating food onto me on a daily basis.  He was a real sweetie though, he used to sit by my bowl in the morning and share my cereal.  I did finally have to find him a new home though due to the noise, we lived in an apartment and were not really allowed to have pets.  A friend of mine who raised lovebirds found him a good home.  My friend said that in all his years of raising birds he had never seen one so tame as my little Mookie.  I really missed him.  I am happy that you found my comment encouraging, I really enjoyed your gallery and will look in on it from time to time.  I will try to find a photo of Mookie and scan it (I had him about twenty-five years ago) and show you what the little guy looked like, not that he did not look like any other lovebird I suppose but he was my little guy.

The Fur detail is amazing! I can only imagine how long this might have took. Very colorful also :meow:

You have done a really nice job on this picture, love the small torrents of color making up the feathers of the Kiwi.
