The Red tufted Cockatoo

......collaged a nursery rhyme to this mixed media piece in my native language 'Bengali'.. says:

Laal jhuti kakatua

dhorechhey je bayena

Chai taar laal phite

chiruni aar ayena
(A red-tufted cockatoo / has got a whim / She wants a red ribbon / a comb and a mirroir)

After all the previous comments, my words would seem like repetition..still, congrats! great job! well done.

Few comments:- for a critical perspective, not very important, a relative taste with a few details....

1. The English translation missed out the mention of the "mirror".
2. I would have preferred the picture to be a little more symmetric, for an overall view...to include the concept of "mirror" image.
3. The scripts of the song are well written and disguised with color effects...a little differentiation between the 2 "N's" in Bengali alphabets would have incresed the detailing aspect

Still its easy to be said than done...and you did it! which we cannot..ever in our life....so kudos!

Thanks everyone!

For the last comment posted by SB, so far as the traslation is concerned, I sourced it from the web itself, great point, where is the ''mirror''?!!! Let me add the mirror.

Its not so much about mirror image as far as 'my' perspective goes. I placed the bird right where the girls ''heart'' is....sybolism....and its about finding your bliss...about finding what your heart REALLY wants and folowing it. Its about the girl finally giving it to the 'bird's' constant craving for what it wants. I have taken up art after a long long time...and THIS IS my bliss...this is what MY red tufted cockatoo really wanted!!!! The lettering feedback is terrific. Thanks for taking time uot n stuying my work, appreciate it.

Now that I know who the 'SB' is....it makes me the happiest to know that this painting got you to write a message out to me in a long long long time!!! And knowing YOUR standards, thatz surely a HUGE compliment and encouragement. Thanks...u r a sweetheart. Hugs. Dee.
