I think this counts as a JustForFun, since it's a painting, not a drawing...

I have a little eBay gallery where I paint portraits. Here's one of my Rickeybird.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I truly appreciate that.
Sadly, I have zero talent at creating art of any kind, I just enjoy looking at everyone else's:)

I'm not sure exactly how Gail creates these. Mine is on a canvas and there is paint used as well and it looks even more incredible in person.
I'm going to get @GaleriaGila to explain her methods:)

Okie-dokie, here we go. A painting, not a drawing... hope that's alright.
Terry (our Mod, the very same) is an amazing toy-maker and vendor... she is absolutely a Bird-Whisperer in this regard.
Anyway, the Rb has always been notoriously bored with toys, BUTTT... Terry sent him a care package, years ago, and one of the toys was a wiffle ball whose holes were interlaced with "corn-rows" of beads. The Rb lost his mind over it and took it with him everywhere, the better to enjoy its charms. The toy had everything... colors, bounciness, portability), I was so touched that I made a painting with a detachable wiffle toy (a tiny s-hook on the backside of the toy).
I studied and re-created the toy, over the years! He still loves the design.
Funny thing, he HATES the painting, attacks it, bites it... I have to keep a close watch on it.
A long story, but here it is...
