Welcome Darrick....A most curious looking bird, it's eye really grabs you first....giving it attentive appearance, it's looking at something...maybe us?
I like the attention to detail on the branch...Nicely done!

Very lovely gift for your mum. She'll love it. Also, it doesn't eat much, so it's an easy pet.

Nice painting! I like the color and values, and the details are nice as well. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Happy Holidays!

Really well done. I am envious that you got the feet to look like bird feet. It is something that eludes me.

Hi Darrick :)

Hoping to see some more art from you. Your bird is beautiful, and your choice of colors too. I like how the background's acid green contrasts sharply with the bird's head, giving nice depth, and bringing our eyes naturally to the bird's eyes. Those are really well done too. And as already mentionned by others here, I like the attention to detail on the branch.
