Red-headed Gouldian Finches
by Susan Willemse


Red-headed Gouldian Finches show three of these delightful colorful characters. The painting appears happy, bright and cheerful and indeed that was the aim of this painting but behind the scene, a different situation existed, you see these Australian birds were actually in quarantine when they kindly posed for the photographs used as references in this artwork and all animals do not like quarantine, these were saying is it time to get out yet? Quarantine is extremely important in immigration, in infection control and in acclimatization and introduction. Stories of exotic birds killing one another if not introduced properly do appear in journals and books. This is true for birds, fish, and other species, quarantine allows for traumatized individuals to settle down. So look carefully and you will see some wishful thinking for time to pass in these little birds faces for they were almost certainly near the end of their ordeal and in great physical shape. This artwork is framed and ready to hang.
