Getting this guy to pose was my entertainment while waiting for my dinner to be prepared. Getting a shot at any thing other than the back of his head was a challenge. He was not in a cage, but on a stand. As you can see he has a stunning face.
This is day 2 of the Painting challenge. So far brushes are wet and my painting table is a mess. It takes several minutes to clean up for the next painting in the morning. Eventually I am going to have to produce 2 paintings in one day. I plan to be traveling in the middle of this month.

Last time I tried this I was preparing to move. I did fine until the moving van came and then I caved. I cannot resist the fun. It is so good to be forced to paint so fast. Most of my work is so slow and precise. I probably will never change but this exercise keeps me from getting tangled up in my aim for perfection.
This flamingo was standing on one foot, gazing at his reflection. He was in a pool with several other flamingos and they were all standing on one foot. This blog is full of questions. Here is the last one for tonight. Why does this seem to be the flamingo's favorite stance? Why do they like to stand on one foot?
