Cactus Gallery LA
RHEA, THE NAKED BIRDIE by artist Kahla Lewis
Oil and acrylic on canvas panel, 5” x 7”, framed to 9.75 x 12" (in a custom painted matching frame)
A lighthearted tribute to Kahla’s favorite naked birdie, Rhea (@rhea_thenakedbirdie).
Rhea was a love bird that had Psittacine Beak & Feather Disease, a virus that caused all of her feathers to fall out and expose her skin. More severe forms of the disease also cause issues with the beak and claws.
Her owner Isabella cared for and loved her unconditionally. She became a viral sensation, having a massive sweater collection sent by fans all around the globe. Find her on Instagram @rhea_thenakedbirdie.
