I grew up with a parakeet named Joey, who was this color. he loved to play in the kitchen with his toys, yes he did have toys, he would pick them up and drop them off the side of the table and turn his head until he heard them hit the floor, then he would go back for another and do it again and again

  125. Love these sweet birds & your awesome coloring!!

  126. Liz mcallister

    These power poppy designs are so detailed and just wonderful!

  127. I adore this image and restamping ove it after watercolouring would be fabulous! I sometimes risk the end of a marker to rehighlight edges lost by watercolouring over them, but a Misti would solve this!
