IAMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmm Back!!!! Did Ya'll mess me. Been off line takeing my Grandson to Doctors. But thats anouther story for anouther time. but is the reason I've not been ablee to post any thing here.

Did get started on the MaCaw(Not sure if it is spelled right.) It is still in the begining stages. I thought that ya'll might like to see it anyway. I will post when I do get it finished.

I'm useing Prisma Color Pencils on Strathmore Charcoal Paper. It is takeing some pretty heavy barnishing. It is holding up pretty good so far.

Glade ya'll like me little bride so far. just need to get some time so I can finish him.

I am working from a very badly taken Pic. Shows very little detail so I hope I'm getting it right.

MissMouse Would love to have some fathers and Pic to work from. will send you a PM

Ivyleaf The paper is 100% cotton fiber paper with a traditional laid patter ans raised texture. or at lest that what the fornt of the folder says about it. it does semm to have a lot of tooth and is hold alot of CP.

Now a little bit about my Grandson. he is 10 months old this week and we have seen that his eyes where not devloping the way they should. and when we would take Pics of him his eyes would always be red. so we have had to take him to Specialist to have his eyes checked. and found that he has OA (Albinism of the eyes) he has very little pigment in his eyes. We are still not sure how well he see the world around him. BUt it could have been worse. on the up side he is a very happy little Guy. and yes I'm gearing up to do a Pic of him.

This might help. I haven't forgotten about the feathers and when Mick gives some up I will put them in the mail for you.
