Reclining Woman with a Parrot, a painting by Valentine Cameron Prinsep

For more parrot love head over to japonisme: her parrot accomplice post. Just beautiful.

"She was not quite what you call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.' ~Mark Twain

Isn't that Twain description divine?
What else would one need to complete that picture??

No, no, no you must have the parrot. I have two.
