Bird paintings and nature: Bananaquit

Coereba Flaveola, Barika Heel, Bananaquit, Chibichibi or Suikerdiefje

are just some of the names of this tiny feathered creature that can be found in the Caribbean.

These birds, with their sunny yellow bellies, represent my youth on Curacao and the tropical life on this beautiful island. 

No worries, always being happy and enjoying the sweet things in life.
