Mealy Amazon Parrot

From Copan, Honduras

Scratchboard 8×8.

Here’s the 8×8 finished product of my Honduran Mealy Amazon Parrot whom I ‘befriended’ at the Macaw Mountain Bird Park and Natural Reserve .

Amazona Farinosa is supposed to be the gentlest of the Amazonian parrot variety – but I sure was scared to approach this one who seemed to be in a rather grumpy mood that humid afternoon.

I finished it a couple of days after my ‘rewarding’ demo at the Skokie Public Library. The folks who attended were simply mesmerized by this ‘strangely therapeutic’ medium.
