I was told that this is one smart parrot. Twenty years old and deeply loved and very spoiled. I was asked to commission this watercolor for a dear friend. It’s actually for her brother who lives in New York. I love New York and I love parrots. I had parakeets as a kid. I was never successful in teaching my birds anything but loved them all the same.
A fun bird to paint and I got to use all of my bright colors on my palette. The best gifts are the ones homemade or carefully selected. My friend’s brother called me to thank me for the portrait. He told me how he found Max. The trouble Max could get into and how much he was looking forward to taking this painting back home. He made me laugh with his stories and jokes about parrots. He had quite a few. ❤️
So I hope you enjoy meeting Max. I was told parrots live a very long time. So this bird will be with us for years to come sharing love and squawks to others.
