Two Still Lifes in Progress

Coming along.... I am really starting to have fun with these two paintings.  They're oils measuring 20"x20" and I am especially enjoying working on the one with the parakeet in it.  A screen print by artist and friend Kacie Rushton, her print features a parakeet and was made on an antique book page.  She and her fiance, photographer JP Corr III, owned the model - a sweet little budgie named Buster who recently passed away.  Her print is so colorful and his expression so inquisitive - I couldn't stay away from using it in a painting!
