Sleeping Sparrow

Tobi is our pet House Sparrow, and my best companion at home (beside my husband, Pete ;-) ). She likes to take a nap on my lap or forearm when I'm working on the computer. She's so precious.

I painted this on Ampersand Gessobord. I've been trying different painting surfaces. I like painting on Gessobords because it's easy to work on details, and to carve my signature. It's not easy to apply thick paint with a brush like I do on canvas because the surface is too smooth. But I think it works well for painting with a palette knife.
