Rose Breasted Grosbeak

Oil on Canvas 9X12

A celebration of feathers. As you can see, this was not a mother. I'm unsure about whether the painting is finished. But I buried the bird in the garden yesterday. It was a little unnerving to try to prop it into realistic poses, and we weren't entirely comfortable keeping it in the fridge, even in a ziploc. Comment, suggestions, critiques?
