Blue and Gold Macaw Portrait by Nambroth Blue and Gold Macaw Portrait by Nambroth
A portrait of a Blue and Gold Macaw, done on a tail feather of the same type of bird!


Acrylic on 1.5" x 10" Blue and Gold macaw tail feather. It was naturally molted (shed) by a pet parrot, the parrot was not harmed.


I get a lot of questions about my painted feathers (yes. it's real paint on a real feather!)-- this link should explain it all! [link]

This one is for sale on my site.

My father had a blue and gold Macaw named Joe. We had her for many years, and this picture makes me miss her a lot. I think it's really cool that you put the painting on a Macaw's feather XD very nicely done, brava/o
