Cushion Cover – Kingfisher Design

I like painting a lot of birds – I picked him, the kingfisher, out because he is short and round and its like he has a cap on.  I see him there at home on the power line with two or three others – they must be his family – they are there all the time in the mornings and afternoon.  Mostly they are there watching our lawn for our insects. He mostly hunts alone – he likes being by himself.
