Hi all,
Not sure if this is correct forum posting but I wanted to ask our members if they were interested in receiving an artpiece of their bird. We are in lockdown here and I am bored when I'm not working so I wanted to give back to some of the members of the community here - perhaps by painting a deceased/beloved bird or two. I occasionally do pieces of birds (see photo) in acrylic and I can do a piece on a canvas paper (would require a frame) and mail it to someone, or just take a photo like this one. The one here is on wood, but I do canvas stuff occasionally (all my canvas paper stuff is of people I know IRL though so I don't want to post them here).

This isn't advertising... I'd do it for free. I do this for fun, not for money and I don't think mailing in the US from Canada would be too expensive (couple of bucks). All I would need is a relatively high quality photo of your bird to reference and we should be good to go! Also I probably only have time and mailing money to do 1 or 2 for now, but if it's not too expensive I can do more later on down the line.

If you'd like a piece, PM me and we can chat about it :) Hope you're all doing well.

I agree. Your cardinal is stunning. It is so nice of you to offer. If you have the time one day, a portrait of my late Timmy would be so lovely.

Hi all - an update on the portraits. I have been busy with work but in my off time I have finished one of the portraits.

I present to you...

Humphrey Bogart Miller!

Thank you! I am glad you did this. In case our forum members want to know, this acrylic painting will be on the cover of Bogie's book. Anya mentioned that you needed to sign it, well, you did! ( Next to Bogie's left foot/ankle! ). As you and I have planned, this will be on the cover, but I will have to determine the size, of course! You got a picture of Bogie when he was young. He was 18 months old in this pose. At 20 months, I removed the band on his leg.

The title, " ALONG CAME..." Will be above Bogie and the words, " BOGIE ! " , will be below him.( ALONG CAME BOGIE ! is one of two titles I have chosen. I will decide which one later. Your name will be credited with a statement inside the front cover about you!
I have written 240 pages and the book is complete, but I will shorten it a little...maybe.

I will e-mail you later! You have a wonderful talent!

David and Vicki

I am happy to clean it up in photoshop so it is book cover appropriate, including the title. :) I will chat with you via email later :D

I have also retaken the photos for Bogie's picture - I will be scanning these next time I have access to a scanner, but a photo will do for now.

Again, phone camera sort of kills what it looks like but you get the gist until I see my parents.

That's the last one I will do for now. If I decide to do another set I will let all of you know :) I have other projects I am excited to work on but I always like doing parrots.
