    It's been awhile since I've done ANY kind of artwork, but I had nothing to do tonight and was in the creative mood. I whipped out the oil crayons and came up with this! (Looks better from far away LOL)

    This is a drawing of a parrot from where I work. Her name is Jazzy. Here is the original picture:

    Thanks everyone!

    Rt. 66, She is actually a green wing Macaw. They are almost the same, but the coloring is a little different. One of these days I will get around to posting a full body shot of her and than you will see her beautiful colors!

    That is really beautiful. Do you ever sell your art? I am looking for some really good chicken (hard to believe, eh?) paintings/drawings eventually and I have NOOOOOO artistic talent.

    I think the background colors are awesome! It's like Jazzy is in a forest.

    Luvmychicknkids,

    I have never actually sold any of my artwork, but I have done stuff for people. My biggest problem is that I have a hard time letting go of my artwork! Maybe I will work on some chickens this week if I get the time!

    Rt. 66, here is that full body pic of Jazzy. I believe Scarlet Macaws have yellow in their wings instead of green, but I'm not too sure. The lady I work for doesn't have any scarlet macaws!
