Chirping out a Welcome

A clothing boutique in Kamiyamacho. The latest addition to the store is the sky blue-and-lemon yellow parakeet perched near the entrance. It was definitely a people person, completely ignoring the magenta head replica that I'm guessing serves as a stuffed animal of sorts.

This bird looked like it had been painted with washes of watercolor. Someone should make a print based on those colors. If parakeet feathers weren't so small, they'd probably be used on ladies' hats and hunted to extinction.
