and is the Swift Parrot.
The bird for her Month of  October.

Valery, this is so beautiful. I doubt I shall ever see one of these brilliant birds IRL, so certainly enjoyed your art. And you know what, I think your sweet Mom will know you did this just especially for her. Hope you are managing ok. Thoughts & prayers coming your way. Hugs & TFS

Hugs, Mrs A.

This is a gorgeous painting Mrs A. We have lots of colourful parrots at our place, depending on what gum trees are flowering. Can't say I've seen this one though. It's a beautiful tribute to you Mum, Cathy x

Beautiful painting Mrs A, and who knows, maybe she's looking down and can still see it. Hope it all went well today xxxxx

Fabulous painting and I am certain that your Mum would have loved it.
Strange but I was 31 when my Mum died suddenly aged 58, the day before I had bought her Birthday present. I have still got it.

Thinking of you.

Aww... how bittersweet. This bird has such brilliant colors and fine plumage. I'll bet he's a treat to see in real life as well.

Very emotional it has made me. I too made mum things before she died and placed them in her open coffin at the church...photos etc that would remind her of us....xx
