Often when we see a black bird we perceive its colour as black. But when the artist takes it as a painting subject, to realise that there is so much more to that black. As funny as it may sound but one ends up using all the shades of blue, turquoise, magenta, purples you have got to actually try to make the bird look BLACK. The black feathers reflect all of the colours of a rainbow.

This piece demonstrates a male red tailed black cockatoo in an action of preening where they make their feathers waterproof and showcases the quiet and peaceful gesture. 

The black cockatoo represents the power of spirit come into your life. It could be a strengthening of your own spirit and soul, or a celebration of any spirits or gods that you happen to believe in. Black cockatoo energy tends to be celebratory and can bring about empowerment, happiness and contentment. 

Echoing the beautiful words of Frank Lloyd Wright, I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. 
This piece is unique in the truest sense for an Australian contemporary art collector with the usage of the best material possible.
