I am painting this piece for another animal lover, my brother-in-law's, Aunty Deidre. I am using a reference pic taken by my nephew......thanks, Bladz! The bird's name is Lori and could not fly so Deidre had him in her care for a long time. Unfortunately, last year, the neighbour's cat killed him and poor Deidre was devastated. I thought this would be a nice tribute to Lori and something for Deidre to remember him by.
On another note, my vegan-ised Ginger Cake was a total success! Beau said it was even nicer than the original recipe. I had planned to take a pic but the cake didn't even last the afternoon. lol
