Sammi the Cockatiel, painting in progress

Today I'm working on a painting of Sammi, my cockatiel who passed away yesterday. I thought it might help me deal with the grief of losing her. I am painting her with one of her favorite bird toys, and this will be framed and hang over her empty cage as a reminder of her.

Sammi is beautiful! I'm amazed at how fast you paint!

Thank you! I do work fast usually...I guess because I'm so focused...once I start, I can't do anything else until I'm done. (other than post in progress photos, of course!)
