This 12 x 16 painting started off being watercolor on watercolor canvas but I find it very difficult to paint watercolor on canvas. I then switched and painted with acrylic. I went over that with pumice ground and then pastel My inspiration was baby conures that belonged to the lady I bought my cocktails from.I took this photo many years ago. I just loved their different expressions and could see their personalities shining through. I left the back ground very plan so that the birds would stand out.
It is a very vibrant painting which unfortunately the photo and computer do not allow you to appreciate to its fullest.
I am mainly a watercolor and Pastel artist but I am open to various mediums.
I have been painting since 1992.
I have travelled alot and have sold works and prints internationally. My works have also won awards. I used to be a member and for a short time president of a local art club however I found the Politics and Personalities interfered too much with my time that could be put into my work.
I live on the east coast of Canada and I paint our local beauty as well as the Carribean and the Mediterranean.
