This is the first bird I have ever drawn so I am sure there is much room for improvement. I named this drawing Candy Marie.
Candy Marie was my first pet, a parakeet. Sounds like a prostitute’s name. My mother accidentally killed Candy Marie (the bird, not the prostitute) by emptying my piggy bank next to the cage to pay the newsboy. The bird keeled over from a heart attack at the noise of the coins. My mother tried so hard to save her. She fed Candy Marie whiskey with an eyedropper after calling the vet. My mother was devastated and so worried about telling me the very sad news. But I was calm. That is my nature. I wanted to touch Candy Marie and my mother let me. All is forgiven.
