I based this painting on a some photos that I took at a zoo called Jungle Gardens that is in Sarasota Florida. I just love how sun conures feathers are the colors of the rainbow (visible spectrum).  And as I was painting this I started thinking about how much leaves look like bird's tail feathers.  I'm not sure if that is an important discovery, but simply something that this painting made me aware of.

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.
