What a beautiful portrait! They do amazing work.

If you don't mind Natacha, could you send me the contact info for the artist? We'll be in Ottawa next month to visit family (and visit the new Calypso waterpark - the kids love waterparks!) And an approximate idea of how much he charges. You can send in a PM if you like.

You could probably save a load by getting a copy of Natacha's. Your birds are the same she has! LOL :lol:

Here is a link to his website.

You can see other work he's done, by category, although I think he needs to update it a bit ;)

He works at a local pet store as well. Normally when he's done a painting he lets me know (he sends a picture before glazing it to make sure it's to my liking) and then I just go pick it up there :)

Be that as it may, I actually find he's been able to capture my birds' essence in the portraits. I look at them and don't just think "Lovebird, Senegal, Red-bellied"..it's definitively "Piper, Shade and Joey".

I'm with you there Natacha. They are beautiful portraits, but I've seen enough pictures of your birds and I agree that he has captured the essence of your birds. While Shade, Joey and Pixel are beautiful birds ... they aren't my Lucy and Jessie. :)

BTW I of course meant same species of birds rather than same personality.

I know :)
I just wanted to point out that while it might be the same species, the ones I have are definitively portraits of my birds ;)

Plus, he only does one of each so I think it would cost the same, regardless of what is ordered ;)
