Artist of the Week: Parrot
No, it's more of endless procrastination. Later mom, I'm busy.
With Max and Rebecca I might get a why now as they follow me along, but in the end they are happy to indulge me and my camera.
Gone South. I know Eclectus does not have the band of yellow, but that was the first bird that sprang to mind.
It's a nicely composed picture that fills the page. The bird is perched on a branch in a fairly realistic pose, which I'm sure is from all the bird watching we do at the breakfast table. She is a very observant person (as are her brothers) and she is developing quite a talent in translating what she sees onto paper.
As I'm sure I have mentioned before, I love how she is not afraid to fill the page. She can make teeny tiny little drawings, but those are more of a result of the size of the paper. It's always fun to she what she'll draw next.
