Just an ordinary little sparrow but somehow the sunlight makes the ordinary extraordinary. I've heard people say they don't like the sparrows; too common, not much color, non descript. I think painting them is challenge, they are a dance of chromatic grey, warm, cool, light, dark; just a bit like life.
This little one was on his way to the feeder, looking forward to a sunflower feast.

Our Ohio winter has been mild so far, there are a few remaining leaves, and the birds are busy munching the last of the berries. This Wren was outside my window yesterday, posing against the grey sky.

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. :)

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.

I try not to be "cute" with my paintings, but sometimes cute just happens. I was photographing and sketching this little robin. Actually he is rather a large bird and not so little at all. I was finishing, and just about to walk away from the window when he bent down and rubbed his beak on the bark. The photo came out really grainy, it was a cold and grey winter day, but I loved his posture so I gave him a try. Here is the photo reference I used. I didn't paint every feather, and definitely embellished his colors. :)Copyright 2015 Linda McCoy

This past summer I was fortunate to be able to capture some images of the Hummingbirds as they rested in the tree next to our deck. The tree was stressed and so its foliage was meager compared to the beautiful dark burgundy leaves it usually has. The upside of it was I was able to observe these little birds while they rested. They are more than cute, and pretty much do everything that the bigger birds do; fluff feathers, sharpen beaks, preen and watch for bugs. They seem to be unafraid of humans, I was able to move my camera around and nearer to them without them fleeing. I think this side of them is not often seen, mostly they are flitting about from flower to feeder sipping nectar.
I am hoping the plum tree survives and returns to it's former glory; a place for the birds to hide and rest, hidden from the hot summer sun.

During a trip to Colorado this past summer we visited a beautiful lake and nature preserve. Outside the visitors center cabin the Hummingbirds were swarming, I'd never seen so many at once. The woman at the center had to take the feeder down so they would calm down. While I was taking photographs one landed on my head. Wild little critters! Thanks to my daughter for the title!

There is something so calm and joyful about painting the little birds. There's plenty of color, texture, light and dark to keep you really thinking during the process. There is a certain curiosity too. When I study them while they are at the feeder, I find that I cannot capture every essence of them in a sketch. It's only when I photograph them that their more subtle markings are revealed. I take a series of photographs, and if I am fortunate enough to have captured a bird in flight, that's the one I'm likely to paint. I am not a photorealist so I rely on my sketches, observances, and photographs to try and come up with a pleasing design and color palette. Thank you for looking!

So it seems there is a story about every painting, some more memorable than others. It was mid-August, I was sitting on the deck with a glass of wine and my camera. Late day but still light. I was interested in capturing the Hummingbirds in flight when I noticed one of them perched in the tree. The plum tree had a bad winter and most of the leaves were already gone; it made it easy to watch and observe. She sat quietly, preening her beautiful feathers. When she looked up I saw a tiny white feather in her beak. She sat there for the longest time almost as if she didn't know what to make of it. After turning her head this way and that, she finally flew off with carrying her treasure. Maybe she was nesting, that seems the logical explanation, or already had her babies and was adding a little more softness to the nest. I prefer to think like my daughter, who aptly named this piece; maybe it needed adornment.
Here she is
