"QUILTED BIRD"($100.)Another small bird that comes to my feeder. I believe they are Gold Finches. Today I had an unexpected visitor. Living in the Pacific Northwest we have Anna Humming birds that stay here all winter. Today I saw a Rufus Humming Bird at the feeder. Oh, so magnificent in the sun; he flashed colors of orange copper and gold! I have tried painting the Anna's, but feel I failed trying to capture the iridescent colors of the bird. My husband suggested I glue sequins on the throat for the colors...not a bad idea since my bird paintings are partly about collage.
I made an attempt to change my blogs color format, it still needs some tweeking, can't get the top to do what I want. Probably will have to stay that way. Sometimes with my finagling I send stuff into never-never land on the computer and can't find a way to retrieve it.
