Rose-Ringed Parakeet

2023 03 10-11, 18 day 266-268 of doing art every day for a year (mostly – I took sick days off).  Seven day gap in there – I was sick. Again. Because this is apparently how I roll now.

Today, I’m painting a rose-ringed parakeet. This species of parakeet is common in Sri Lanka. In fact, in one house we lived in, we had a neighborhood pack of these parakeets numbering at least 50. They loved the orchid tree we had in front of our house. They loved hanging around on the banana plants and the dead tree in the next door lot, too. I loved watching them and hearing them chatter.
