The Peanut Gallery

I've never been tempted to make art about my studio mates, the birds, probably because they are so beautiful in the first place. Add a misting of water droplets and sunlight and Beauty Bird is breathtaking. What is always a surprise is that she is fragrant too. You don't think of a bird as smelling like hyacinths. All that color and a perfume too.

Every possible shade of blue, each blue feather with a yellow underside. Some of my favorite feathers are the tiny ones from her shoulder, each one is half yellow and half blue.
