Here is the promised photo of “Working Man’s Hands”. Very exciting that it won Honorable Mention at the Glendale Arts Council, ” Sahuaro Ranch Show”!!  Speaking of awards….Congratulations to my daughter, Claudine, who won a trip to Chicago with her awesome work on hair (color, cut,and style) and makeup. My granddaughter, Taure,was her model and looked absolutely gorgeous after the transformational magic was completed. She is beautiful anyway, but looked like a model, with yours truly being the OFFICIAL photographer. Oh, You would like to see, well, think I might be able to arrange that!

Oh, yes, we had company over the weekend, and have a visitor with us now. Ripley, the African grey, spent the weekend with us, regaling us with his extensive vocabulary. His latest saying is “What’s up with that?” We also have Willie the Mili-gold Macaw staying with us for a few weeks while her best friends recovers. She has a pretty good vocabulary for a macaw, loves women……, not so much. It was pretty funny when she cornered hubby and the two cats in the laundry room…….It definitely sounds like a zoo around here with a flock of seven, LOL. Luckily, during this visit, Ripley was unable to convince any of the other parrots they needed a lawyer. So no birdie modeling strikes in the immediate future.

Meanwhile, back at the Cardinal………………here is the progress to date. Mostly a lot of little detail and the black feathers are in, yeeeesssss, it looks like a ghost eyed cardinal. But have patience, this is a Work-in-Progress after all.
