Oil on museum quality ampersand Gessobord panel 6" x 6"
The intensity of color got lost in translation on this portrait of the late Dabasir. I haven't had a chance to paint many birds. It was fun to have a new texture to play with after all the fur I've been painting lately. Dabo was 40 when he passed and hopefully he is flying high among the morning stars.

your brush work and color detail on those feathers is remarkable and he has that realistic "Adam's eye".

As you know, I usually prefer fur to feathers but this boy is gourgous!

What a beautiful Amazon. Reminds me of my dear, sweet Vezzie. Thanks for the wonderful memory.

Beautiful painting!! Sad to hear that Dab is gone, but this painting is such a great tribute to him.

Thanks, Akiko!

That means a lot coming from you.
