This nesting box has been attached to a wall on the deck for several years. Most of the stenciling I did awhile ago has weathered along with the wood. It has remained uninhabited by the birds until a few days ago. It is close enough to the window for me to be able to sketch and photograph, which has been a lot of fun. They have brought so much nesting material into this box, and sometimes I see them taking a beak full back out, maybe Diane doesn't like the color! They are busy all day.
I decided to name them Jack and Diane, after the John Mellencamp song. I guess I could have called them Bonnie and Clyde, but that is somehow not as fitting. I hope these little Carolina Chickadees have a successful hatching!

Working with a new color from Williamsburg handmade oil colors called "Provence Violet Bluish. A very pretty color! The little glass is from a store in Lebanon, Ohio; Rose and Remington. I think the top is made to hold a place card at a table setting.

Allen's Hummingbird Painted from Live Streaming


























So this is the story of Bella, an Allen's Hummingbird that I painted from a live stream. It took me three days of observing and trying to manage the changing light. What an experience. As for Bella, as I write this around noon on Wednesday, she now has her babies.  You can watch her by following the link. I should note that I wrote an email to explore.org to ask them if it was a copyright infringement to paint from a live feed, and they were extremely nice and told me it was not. So here she is, Mama Bella. :) Many thanks to explore.org for posting this little bird!
