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!
