    I have been working on this painting for two months now! I was panicking, worrying if I would have it ready for exhibition this weekend. I took a sick day from work today to finish it off LOL
    It is 22 x 30", the plants and birds are lifesize!!
    I hope you will like it!!

    After the exhibition, what's going to happen to the picture? Does it need a home?
    I adore all the birds.
