I have always been so enamored of birds, no matter the type and so am adding this fantastic fellow to my collection. He was just great fun to work on and I think he will have to remain with me as I enjoy looking at him a lot. Thank you for taking a peek and for any comments you may be kind enough to leave for him ;)

Lovely, my mind would fry trying to deal with all those feathers!

Great use of light against dark to define the feathers. Bob

Sarah Rose and Bob, thank you both so much for your comments on this little character. The feather work was actually quite cathartic and the piece became more about the journey than the end goal, which is probably very good for me at times.
