The red tufted Cockatoo

Inspired by a Bengali rhyme about the ''Red Tufted Cockatoo'' 
(who is on a whim to get a red ribbon, a comb and a mirror!)
I wrote the rhyme in Bengali script in the painting and used a gold backdrop with a subtle crackle antiqued finish. (I have increased the contrast in the close up, not sure if  the crackle can be seen very well). I will be listing it in the next couple of days.
Thanks for all the wishes, Arnab is coping up. 
I recieved the book I won on ebay some time back, 
The biography of Frida  by Hayden Herrera.
I think I should start with the doll tomorrow.
Hope you guys had a great weekend.
Love to my lovely readers.
à bientôt!

I love the colors, they are so rich. They remind me of the book I just finished, "The Space Between Us", set in Bombay.
