Yellow-fronted amazon parrot - commissioned painting

Here is the latest addition to my etsy shop - a commissioned portrait of a female amazon parrot. This looks a sweet bird, with a bright and perky look, but sadly she has passed away and the picture is a memento of her.
I have happy memories of regularly visiting the parrots in Regent's Park Zoo when we lived in London. There were a couple of very jolly and playful yellow-fronted amazons in a quiet corner of the zoo and we'd slip them the odd nut (probably not allowed now). I do remember that they could be horrendously loud sometimes, when they were not chuckling and bouncing up and down on their perches.
