Your Own Backyard, Oil Painting by Linda McCoy

This is painting number 300!
These are in full bloom now, show offs in the back yard. Bright sunny flowers with warm colors. The birds are merrily picking away at the seeds. We didn't plant these, they grew from seeds dropped from the bird feeder. I watched the DVD "Queen of Trees" (again) which was broadcast on public television but available on DVD. I don't know what it is about that one hour journey that takes one through the seasons of a fig tree that compels me to watch it over and over. It's the story of how so many things on the earth are dependent on each other for life. It combines a complex nature experience with beautiful music and photography. Maybe I should have named this painting "Queen of Sunflowers"
6"X6" Oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas.
