I thought I would introduce myself here. I usually hang out in the Animal and Wildlife forum but I have been doing some other paintings as well. These are some of my parrot paintings. The blue and gold macaw is my Razz, the guy on the portrait is me with her, the hyacinth macaw is from a photo by Gaka from the image library. "Razz & I" is 16"x20", "Razz Preening" is 16"x32", and "Indigo" is 12"x24".

I was checking out the parrots in the RIL and Razz did catch my eye

These are wonderful. The third is my favorite. I feel that you have really expressed the personality of your parrot as well as the relationship you share. Very few can do this. Thank you for sharing!

these colors...are stunning
the birds are so well animated
what i like most is the looseness
and directness of the way
you handle the paint

Thanks Bobbo. Those are exactly the things I strive for, looseness and directness of application.
