Pink Pink Cockatoos


The Composer and I had a few free hours on Saturday to wander the backroads on the way home from dropping the girls off with Grandmother. We (I should say "I" since the Composer has no part in this madness) found this glorious paint-by-numbers rendition of Major Mitchell Cockatoos in a little thrift store. Of course at the time of purchase I didn't know exactly what kind of cockatoo they were, just that they were a happy pink.

Felix filled me in on the breed, and claimed the painting for his own.

I have never in my life thought of paint-by-number as glorious,
but as I live and breath....
these vintage colored cockatoos are gloriously gorgeous~
like drapes in a 1940's bungalow.
What an eye you have!

I have white cockatoos with yellow often in the backyard, screeching. They are magnificent. (Australia)
