I met this little bird on Melissa's blog
You can meet him and Melissa's Gilbert here.
Ever since Melissa showed him I was fascinated by his colors and knew I had to paint him in a mandala one day.
So that's how he flew in Farah's mandala.

Enjoy Ollie and his cousin Gilbert in these posts

    Ollie IS a living *Rainbow*....I've never seen a *Parrolet* before! Going to check out Melissa's Blog now!

    Congratulations dear Lisa!! And....both Farah and Melissa will adore this beautiful Mandala!
