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.

This is a male and female Sparrow getting in each other's way at the feeder. Taking the photo was easy, painting these two not so much. Lots of feathers and feet. Graceful little birds.

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

I think it's hard to capture all of the blue in this bird but I gave it a try. I ended up using three different blues and a teal color. Lots of fun, this little one.

Seems like there are hundreds of Sparrows in our yard and certainly enough to sketch and photograph. This little one caught my eye, he seemed to have a friendly little face. We try to take care of them with plenty of food and water. Nurtured, he is!
