Hi Joanne,

I'm writing with a huge favour even though you don't know me from Adam.

My father passed away May 24th of last year and I would love to incorporate your picture into a tattoo honoring him.

You see, my mom is Australian and we would go over as often as we could, I'm Canadian by the way. My dad LOVED Australia and he especially loved kookaburras.

One of my strongest memories of him is singing the kookaburra song to me and when I saw your picture I knew it was what I'd been looking for but not finding when I was trying to put together a memorial tattoo.

Thanks,

Tracey

Wow, great attention to detail, the wings are very well done! I especially admire the foreshortened one, I can never do that satisfactorily. :clap:

Very beautiful and detailed! At first when I saw the small pic I thought it was a tattoo because of the pale background and pinkish hues around the bird! Lol.
