African Grey parrot painting

The title of this painting- ‘ A Critical Conversation’  refers to the fact that the African grey parrot, such a popular bird, has had the status of ‘endangered’ on the IUCN red list since 2016, a fact I was shocked to learn.  The popularity of African Greys as intelligent pets has led to them being harshly trafficked for the pet trade. Ironically more pet parrots than ever are being relinquished to bird rescue centres and zoos by owners who, for various reasons, find they cannot care for them properly. If you have ever visited Lincolnshire Wildlife Park and seen the huge number of rescued birds in their excellent care ( including their famous swearing parrots!) the fact that they are still being cruelly torn from the wild seems even more of a travesty.

This painting of African Grey parrots is in oil on  a 30 x 30 cm stretched canvas and comes framed in a moulded cream wooden frame. Framed size is 33 x 33 cm. and the painting is supplied ready to hang with cord attached.
