Meet Frank. He's an African Grey. I was commissioned to do this piece for an old high school friend who currently lives in New York. Can't say that I've ever done a pet portrait before, and it was quite challenging. I'm not a big fan of reality (who isn't?) and I tried to make Frank look as true to himself as possible. It's on canvas too, so that was another challenge. Frank's owner seems to like it, so off it will go in the mail on Tuesday. Wish him luck...I have also never mailed art before.
