It was a tough choice this week. I retouched an early painting and completed 3 oil paintings all of which I was pleased with. But my final choice is this one. Why?... Pukekos- you just gotta love 'em! With their quirky looks. Outrageously large feet, stunning blue plumage and contrasting red beak and feet they bring so much character and lend themselves so well to my naturally bold style of painting.
