I love the concept, very light and open to a variety of consumers. It's a friendly cute image.

A critique for the artist, as an avid bird enthusiast, I'm a little disturbed by the subject matter. The bird you depicted is undoubtedly a male North American Kestrel, yet you turned it into a abstraction of some sort of song bird by triangulating it's beak, removing the identifying curve and putting it in an environment non-representational of it's magestic predatory nature.

So, in conclusion, perhaps in the future, include a more relatable species of bird in the composition.

Otherwise, nice handling of the medium and fair draftsmanship.

Good luck!

Dear Michael,
Thanks for your feedback. I painted from a photo I took at a bird sanctuary in Florida. I appreciate your critique, I was painting a colorful scene and I wanted to include colorful bird that I had photographed. I did not study this bird before painting it. I am no professionally trained artist, it is a fun and rewarding hobby for me resulting in a few sales here and there on ETSY...
Here is the photo I painted from..I try to paint what I see...
