I usually begin a painting with a very specific idea in mind.  That was the case with these blue and gold macaws.  I love their bright colors and I wanted to showcase them against something much more muted and non-specific.  Since I have a longtime crush on Italian Fresco artwork I decided to go that direction with the background.  Specifically, I wanted to pay homage to a famous garden fresco originally located in the dining room of the Villa de Livia outside of Rome.  The colors worked perfectly with my macaws, and it invoked a feeling that I liked.  The result is this print:  “Macaws on Fresco,” painting #1.
