I am just a little partial to magpies. Probably that is due to the fact that in the almost 40 years I have been married to my husband I have heard the stories of his pet magpie, Rascal. That bird must have been something else. Not only could he talk but he was a constant tease and enjoyed tormenting human, dog and insects alike.
The red/orange background I chose is different than what I usually paint but I really like how it compliments the black and white of the bird and makes him just pop off the canvas.
