The image of the chincol is absolutely beautiful. I love how you did the border.

You have admirers of every age. :)

I like the shadow effect you created on the wings--a lovely departure from your usual style. And the expression on the baby's face is priceless.

this is amazing! The chincol holds a very special place in my heart, it has been inspiration for many of my drawings and sketches. I just love how bold these little guys can be, considering their size.

Hi!

I was wondering if you have considered selling prints of the Chincol illustration? I am from Chile (currently living in FL) but my dad LOVES the Chincol (it is his username/email everywhere)and I would love to buy it for him.

I love love your art! I would love to own a piece one day too!

Just beautiful, Gennine. I'm constantly amazed by how perfectly you distill the essence of each flower and bird you draw. Such simple-looking lines, yet such perceptiveness!

Que lindas obras de arte! admiro su creatividad para plasmar la belleza de los pájaritos. Amo la naturaleza. El chingol se ve que es un precioso pajarillo chileno. Gracias.
