Friday Fun!



Today is going to be so much fun!

I get to meet my friend Alicia's new baby parrotlet, Julio!






Here he is taking a bath.

I am so excited to meet Julio. Parrotlets are very smart, sweet and funny creatures.

Alicia found Julio after meeting my Gilbert the last time she came to visit.



Here are two paintings I have done inspired by my love for Gilbert.
If you would like, you can see all of my parrotlet paintings on Parrotlet Art.



My Gilbert says Hello!




And so does Emmitt!

Here he is peeking down at me in the kitchen to see if I have a cookie for him.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the picture of Emmitt peeking through the stairs. I think he wants some Costco organic cookies from his Auntie Linda!:)

Hi, Melissa. We are vibrating!!!! Nice.

I love the images of the birds. My heart melted when I saw them. I think I must have one of them. I've never had a pet bird. Gotta do some research.

Ahhh! They are sooo cute! Love them all, but especially love that cute face peeking down from above with the little ears flopping foward.
Thanks for sharing.

What cute little birds and what wonderful paintings of them! I'd never heard of a parrotlet before, but now I WANT one!

BTW, Melissa, anytime you want to come to Maine and organize my closet, you have a standing invitation! Emmitt, too!

Thanks for your continued support of my blog!
