This portrait of my house guest, Suzie the baby sunbird was painted at the beginning of lockdown 3 months ago.
She flew out of her nest on my balcony and landed on my living room floor, feeling dazed and confused. I watched her from the sofa as she sat there plucking up courage to attempt another flight after the fall. She took her time, waddled around, flew to the edge of the balcony and with all her strength and courage, flew off to the unknown.
