Can you get something easy for April? Perhaps a rock or shoe.  These parrots are so well done I am intimidated. All I can say is well done, crew! :clap:

Been so busy I didn't think I was going to get this finished.  It is done in oils.  I found this to be very very challenging.  Love these challenges.  I am learning so much.  Suggestions for improvement are welcome!!  thanks to all of you.

Oils on Canvas.  For me, was very hard to do.  Should have been a 2 Month Challenge.  As always, I enjoyed the learning process (the journey ) of this painting.

The challenges make me try subjects that I have been afraid to try.  I didn't think I could paint a parrot but it is amazing what we can do if we just try.  Thanks to all for your encouragement.  Sherri   :thankyou: :clap: :clap: :clap:
