Daphne 1

© Ellen Blonder
Daphne is a cockatoo who spends many of her days on her perch at the Kong Lung Historic Market Center in Kilauea, Kauai. She has played catch with me, and I once observed her enjoying a long neck-scratching by an indulgent shopper. Daphne belongs to the owner of Kong Lung Trading, always a must-see place for its thoughtful selection of beautiful things.

I've long wanted to paint Daphne in acrylics, so here she is on an 8x10-inch canvas board after a couple of days. I think I want to give her a vacation and put her somewhere a bit fanciful.
