Hummingbird for Today!
Today's painting is a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, found in the Eastern U.S. Or is it a broad-tailed hummingbird found in the Western U.S ? I confess that I painted this little guy so he could be either or ...they're similar birds. Some days these little oil studies fly right off my brush - and other days, like today, it's a struggle from start to finish. But he's finished and I like him! Hope you do too.
This is #14. I have 61 more to paint to meet my goal. If you'd like to see the first thirteen, click on this link.
