soldIn real life I don't especially care for birds...they kind of creep me out...I feel as though they are unpredictable in their responses. You know how someone who owns a bird might say " watch out Quakers likes to bite!" like its no big deal, or maybe they use the word 'nibble' well the idea of a bird biting or nibbling is enough to keep me at a distance. yikes. Fun to paint though, intelligent seeming eyes. On to horses. L.
