Do you know the Kakapo?

12x16 Oil on 1/4" wood panel -SOLD

The Kakapo is a large (think small penguin) flightless bird native to New Zealand.  They are endangered and there are only about 125 left in the wild. They are long lived and can live 60 to 90 years. Such a peaceful looking creature.  I'd love to meet one. 


  1. This is beautifully painted Lauren, and I really love the colors you chose to complement the Kakapo. FABULOUS EYE!

  2. Popped over from The Art of Doing Stuff. LOVE your artwork, Lauren!

  3. Lovely creature! Really cute and reminds me of an owl. Interesting, whether that is possible to domesticate them?
