This is my 2nd painting acrylic painting that I have done. It is on a 12” x 16”canvas. I did it some of it in an art class. Everyone else painted wilderness scenes. I wanted to start with a complete abstract background and then add the two Love Parrots. They are really yellow and red with a bit of pink in real life that I got from a picture. I changed the color arrangement a bit on the abstract side. As you can see, I love to paint with bright colors. I am partially color blind, so I have to ask my wife sometimes, how to start to match a color or one of my previous colors. I can’t always see browns and purples and greens if they are on the weak side. It’s like having 40-50 vision.

Thankyou for all your friendly comments. I love to squzzee those yellow, blues and reds. One of these days after I get a little more confident, I would like to paint a large canvas, but I know I would have to have a lot
more composition. LLoyd

Nicely done! Think this would translate wonderfully for a silk scarf, or something along those lines, very good design properties and color for transferring to fabrics. Love it!
