Pets - Love Birds

              I am mostly inspired by the wildlife and like to draw them. Series of Farm Animals drawn by Edgar Hunt creates an interest and I finished two of them - Goats with Hen and Cattle with Hen. The various hues of brown - soil, hay, cattle, goat and huts blends well in this picture.

Cattle with Hen and Cock

             Now my new pets - a pair of love birds draw my attention. I am keen on painting them in their vivid colors of green, blue and white. The male is colorful and acts in a natural way, but the female one is quite stylish in her way and expect every work to be done by her partner, even grains are sometimes feed by him. Most of the time, the male do somersaults and she moves here and there on the bar. Nice to watch...most enjoyable.
            The cage is a old one which was made to keep my favorite pet, a parrot named Bobby. She lived with us for 5 years. She called names, talked many words like 'vaada(come), poda(go)' in our mother tongue Tamil, wished 'Good Morning, Hello' and whistles loudly. Now the cage needs new look. We plan to paint the cage in green and the bars in yellow.
