Once I got a job teaching in the graphic design field in early 1988, I wanted to experiment using color and was inspired by all of the creative folks around me. For a while, my wife, Julie and I bred and raised birds, mostly parrots, conures and endangered finches. It was during this time, I rendered this picture of the only parrot indigenous to North America, the Carolina Parakeet. This was done with pen and color pencil.
