In the beginning of February I had the privilege of being approached by Brooke Desserich, author and founder of The Cure Starts Now Foundation to donate a piece of art to their gala and silent auction in March.
I was flattered. This year the event has a jungle theme, so I decided to create a piece of art that would fit in with the event. I knew I wanted to paint birds, of course but I was uncertain what kind.
I decided to paint two Sun Conure Parrots, they are colorful, happy, cheerful birds and I thought they would be perfect for the event.
