The Parrot

The Blue Parrot

Matisse, our company namesake and mascot, is a Blue & Gold Macaw. At over 25 years old, he was born in the USA and handfed as a baby. He is believed to be of Bolivian descent.

Matisse as a handed baby

Often heard greeting the neighbors with a distinct, almost too loud, 'HI,' Matisse talks up a storm. He can carry on one half of a phone conversation and often gives himself a stern 'NO!' when he knows he is doing something he shouldn't. He is a sweet parrot and quite gentle.

Matisse's favorite foods are bananas, pizza, grapes, pecans and walnuts. His favorite past times are giving kisses, swinging in his swing, climbing ropes and destroying his toys.

Matisse recommends the following colors, all in an eggshell sheen, of course:
Sherwin Williams 9022 Yellow Bird
SW 9062 Bluebird Feather
SW 6778 Aviary Blue
Ben Moore Bird's Egg 2051-60
Parrot Green CW-465
Blue Macaw 784
