This pair of tropical birds was a recent commission. Painted in acrylic, they each measure 16"x20" I had a hard time getting the canvas moire' out of the photos. What's up with that? Anyway they must get blogged to save for posterity!
They're not the cutest birds I've ever seen, but their colors are fairly true to life; painted from some botanical drawings. Imagine what beautiful plumage they must have in real time.
