Wow! Really lovely. It looks as if the bird is ready to fly out and explore the vast horizon.

Re: Bird Artists, Bird Art!

Thank you! Buttttttt...

That is not my work... it's a shameless stealing of a famous illustration, reproduced and made slanderous by my husband (and RivalOfTheRickeybird)!! Pretty funny, though! He and the Rickeybird are indeed rivals for my affections. I refuse to support the deportation of the Patagonian, though! Maybe I should investigate the deportation of my ol' man back to Ireland!!!!!!

Re: Bird Artists, Bird Art!

Thank you, Inger. Memorial portraits are a huge responsibility, and I admit I'm grateful for praise and reassurance that I 'got it right'.

Re: Bird Artists, Bird Art!

People have long asked me if I have portrayed the Rickeybrd. Nope. Probably because he doesn't have PayPal.

But at last, here he is. With a twist.

His favorite toy (made by our own Terry57... and then chewed half to bits by the Rb) is detachable, using a dab of non-drying craft adhesive.
I neglected to crop the second photo so that you can see my toes, which I thought was a nice professional touch.

The prodigal homewrecker returns! I wondered where she went.
Love this!!

Re: Bird Artists, Bird Art!

I want to explain the "Homewrecker" thing.

A while back, Terry made a little wiffle ball toy for the Rb. It had beads, straws, cords, paper, all kinds of stuff. It was the Faberge Egg of all wiffle toys.

The Rb didn't care for it, of course, much preferring other toys she had made. Then one day he set upon it with great passion, and destroyed just about everything except for a few "corn row" strings. Suddenly, after his 'makeover", it became the most desirable toy he had ever seen. He fed it, courted it, romanced it... the works... and I do mean the WORKS! He began charging me when I approached it, and lost interest in all other toys, including me.

So I impounded that HOMEWRECKER and actually sent it back to Terry, who then threatened to send it back to ME. No small matter (Canada/America postage). This has become a running joke, so I couldn't resist providing a detachable HOMEWRECKER in his portrait!

This is actually the first portrait I've ever done for myself.
Of course, my ol'man (Rival of the Rickeybird) is urging me to sell it, or if need be, PAY somebody to take it.
Grrr.

Re: Bird Artists, Bird Art!

As always, I'm floored by your artwork! RB looks like he's literally flying off the page, glorious home wrecker in tow. Beautiful, Abigail! And having been privy to that joke for a while now, rather hilarious!
