Sunshine #8

Teri, one of this Challenge's graduates, has shared Sunshine's mischief on her blog since 2009. When Sunshine, her cockatiel, died recently Teri posted a whole series of photos of her dear Sunshine on her blog, http://painteddaisies.blogspot.com/. I couldn't resist painting her beautiful Sunshine. My goal was to capture the beauty and joy of her little bird.

Watercolor on watercolor paper -- I forgot to jot down just which paper I used.

Elva, you did such a beautiful job on Sunshine, I get teary-eyed every time I look at it. You captured her personality just perfectly! We are getting it framed right now.
Thank you so much for this gift of love.

Elva, you captured beauty and joy and sweetness. The shading on this white bird (another!) is great and plays off the yellows and reds so well.
