This guy hangs out at the feeder, scares most of the other birds away. I don't mind, when we are in the warmest days of summer he'll be eating his weight in bugs :)

This bird is from my own photo reference. I am always amazed at how the sunlight changes subjects from ordinary to outstanding. I love how the light passed through his wings. These little Sparrows look pretty ordinary sitting at the feeder in our yard or perched in a tree, but in flight, magic happens :)

These little Finches are voracious little eaters. They are at the feeder nearly all the time during the day. The tree she is perched in is a plum tree, it does not bear fruit but has the most beautiful dark burgundy foliage. When the sun sets on this tree, it's magic, the leaves glow as the light pours through them. I sit at the window and wait, and before too long, I am able to gather enough reference material to paint these busy little birds. So delightful!

My time during the past few months was spent photographing birds. It seems to have been time well spent since I have been using my photo's as references for bird paintings. Here is a Chickadee, perched on a Begonia on our deck. He sits on a rusty, weather worn planter.

I tried a new color on my palette today, "Cobalt Teal" a handmade oil paint by Eric Silver at Blue Ridge Artist Supply in North Carolina. I am never disappointed by the wonderful quality of these oil colors. I love the new color!
