I based this painting on a some photos that I took at a zoo called Jungle Gardens that is in Sarasota, Florida. I caught this macaw as he was grooming his feathers and I thought that the angle of his body would look cool on a circle canvas.

Detail of the painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
