Guira cuckoos by WendyMitchell Guira cuckoos by WendyMitchell
Oils on canvas

From the minute that I saw this wonderful photo by :icondeeotter: I wanted to paint it. I just hope my painting does the photo justice!

I would rather LOOK AT YOUR gallery than just thank you for faving my work. So please excuse my bad manners if you fave or comment on my work, because I may not be thanking you. Instead I will be looking at your work!

So cuuuuute! And that little one, the second one from the left, he looks so angry! And I love how you have their little claws hanging out of the border, so it looks like they're perching.
