Parakeet Rainbow

Spring 11There are enough colors and types of parrots to make a feather rainbow. I tried to include all the colors of American parakeets in this painting, and to show how alert and friendly they are. These were together in a cage in a pet store, nervously watching as we approached them. I wanted to free them, but we were far from a warm enough climate for them to survive, so I show them outside the bars, ready to take off in a bright little flock if I simply wave my hand.
