For Illustration Friday's topic of "Portrait" I thought it would be cute to have our macaw, Plato, painting our blue budgie, Rain. I definitely had fun working on this, though I kept looking to Plato to see how her colors combined and she wasn't very helpful. First she was preening and had her head tucked every time I looked over at her. Then she was playing with a toy on her cage and I still couldn't see her head. The next time I looked she was taking a nap with her face hidden. I think maybe she was being a little shy.
