I had the MOST FUN creating this art jewel! It looks like Romeo is really giving Juliet a stern talking-to...I wonder what she did? :)

And I've decided something - parakeets are the HARDEST birds for me to do. I figured they'd be easy....they are easy to take care of (I've owned parakeets since I was 11), and they are just the sweetest little birds. But they are NOT easy to portray in art because of all of the tiny lines and markings. Not to mention I rarely put two subjects on a piece, so that was also a little more difficult. But I am very pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? Leave me a comment below!
