"Red-Fronted Macaw" 8"x10" oil.

This lesser known macaw is an endangered species endemic to Bolivia, with between 1,000 - 4,000 left in the wild. It has declined steeply mostly due to loss of habitat (>40% of its habitat being converted to agriculture), with some being lost to the illegal pet trade. If I sell this piece, I will be donating a portion of the sale to the World Parrot Trust (https://www.parrots.org/).
My scanner really didn't know what to do with the saturated colors on this one!
