Medium: acrylic on linen

 

Because of this delicate and fragile habitat where we share our world with animals, it is up to us to make sure that we leave the smallest of footprints possible. Care is needed to make sure we keep our eyes open and be vigilant about endangered species, like the kakapo – their numbers picking up slowly after near-total eradication, yes, by humans and introduced pests. The housing ‘boom’ is bad news for flightless birds like the kakapo, who has a distinctive call that, ironically, sounds like a deep, throaty ‘boom’.

The kakapo, also called owl parrot, is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea, endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and relatively short wings and tail Wikipedia

This work is inspired by this beautiful bird, acrylic on linen with touches of metallic and iridescent paint. The mood changes with different lighting.
