It is seldom that all  things I love as an artist come together in one image. We were at Voice of America Park Sunday morning, and this little sparrow was perched on a rusted barbeque. I waited and waited for him to land on the handle,  finally he did, and posed perfectly. I love the rusty abstract elements combined with realism. I will leave you to ponder why I chose the Dutch language in my title, with much thanks to fellow painter, Rene' PleinAir for confirming the translation. :)

These little birds are so easy to please, a mesh sock filled with thistle and they are happy for days. I named this painting "Young at Heart" because this little one seemed to have lots of energy. Fun to watch, and a good exercise in painting those pesky yellows.

This little woodpecker lives in the tree right next to our deck. He feasts on the suet cakes, and is pretty visible most of the time. On this day, I was able to photograph him mid-flight. His feathers, black from the topside were a beautiful grey underneath. So, here he is, oil on two inch cradled panel.

I was able to capture these geese during a visit to Armco Park in Lebanon, Ohio. Loud, honking, splashing and just generally causing a commotion. Here they are coming in for a landing. So much fun to paint!

This guy lives at the Newport, Ky. aquarium. Lots of fish, jellyfish, sharks and other critters, but this one caught my eye. He's has poison in those quills, shoots them at his prey and sometimes people or so I've heard. Ouch. Watercolor on 140lb cold press paper.

So much food, still they intimidate each other for a place on the feeder. The bottom bird was just about to land on the feeder when the top bird decided he wouldn't let him.
Interesting time painting this one, trying to capture the action.

Off to the market to buy flowers for a still life painting. Arriving home, I learn there has been a casualty. Found lying near the driveway in the snow, still perfectly formed. Not an apparent violent attack by hawk or feral cat. Mother Nature took him back, the winter just too harsh on his tender little body. Rest in peace little bird.
