Wishful Thinking

I want to make this into a painting for an upcoming small canvas show. It's based off a pet parakeet I had when I was little (from third grade through ninth) named Wishful.  She was the most awesome parakeet in the world- seriously overflowing with personality and charm!

Her name was Wishful, because for 4 months straight I wished every single night for a parakeet on the brightest star in the night time sky.  So, when I finally got her, she was a wish come true for me.  The irony of it was that the small blue bird we bought home wasn't the blue/green bird I had picked out in the store- in the flurry of nets and birds and stuffing her in a little box, we didn't really realize it until we had gotten home.  Lucky for me, I got the best bird in the world!

I miss you little one!
