Sam is majestic. I love how the magnification and framing of this tiny parakeet expose a grandeur and sovereignty otherwise completely overlooked in this type of bird. When speaking of this painting, many refer to “the eagle” or “the owl”, birds typically expressing strength, independence and wisdom. How often we overlook majesty in the commonness of everyday life!

Sam is my first painting, naively based on a photo seen in a magazine without taking proper notice of the photographer. I wish in no way to infringe on any copyrights and appreciate information on whom to contact to seek permission.
