Naturally Beautiful and Polished Giveaway Winner!

Hello ladies,

The time to select the winner for the Naturally Beautiful and Polished Giveaway has arisen!

We begin with 656 hand written contest entries, mingled with birdseed.
Here comes Yellow Sun, the illustrious cockatiel!
To cast some light onto the proceedings,

Yellow Sun circles around the bowl.

and offers a backwards glance.

He ruffles up his feathers...

And picks up the name of the winner!
Congratulations to Zara!
What a bright fellow! Thanks so much, Yellow Sun!

Check out Zara's blog: Never Unpolished. She has lots of pretty swatches of fashion forward shades.

Many thanks to Overall Beauty and Reviva Labs for sponsoring this giveaway. A special thanks to my sister Claire and my friend Sarada for all manner of photographic assistance and pet stewardship.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. Congrats, Zara! And ROFL @ the birdie. We have one like this too.

  2. Silverstar: Thanks!

    nihrida: Yellow has such personality. I was so surprised to see him shaking his tail feathers in the entries. Hilarious! :)

  3. Congrats to the winner!!!

    I love Yellow Sun! I have a lady cockatiel, she is gray, but now she started to change her feathers and became a little yellowish, especially on the belly and around the neck :)

  4. Congrats to the winner! :)

    I absolutely love your animals and how you do your giveaway winner picking :)

  5. Congratulations zara!

    And the way you pick the winners also deserve a price :D

  6. Ooh, yay! Thank you! I love Yellow Sun, he's gorgeous. :)

  7. Congrats to Zara. Will you ever run out of adorable animals to pick a winner! Beautiful cockatiel. Birds are so beautiful. I love to watch them outside my patio doors.

  8. This makes me miss my parakete... birds are great pets. The cockatiel is a lovely shade of yellow. Very cute.

    And congrats Zara!

  9. You can now rival Dr. Doolittle. I like how Yellow had Zara's name on his tail feather. Congratulations to Zara. The pets have formed an actor's guild. We can dress them up for future contests, like Elf can be a meercat, Max - a polar bear and so on. Love, me.

  10. I love your contests just for a cute results!

  11. I love the bird....He knows that he is the star....Post like a true model.....
