Wow...in a word AWESOME! You have captured the essence of this magnificent bird, i love parrots..and you have really captured its energy as it flies, and spreads its wings...the eye, sharp and ever ready, the powerful beak, ready to grab what ever it finds...your flaming reds, the oranges,, yellows..greens...i Love the energy of this painting, alive and full of light!!! Wow...five stars and many more ******, Brenda we used to have a star system for votes...and five stars were the most we could give...and so i still like using that system...and YOU are a Star to me! Have an awesome day..and keep up the beautiful painting!!!!
