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.

  1. I think he's fantastic! I don't know my hummingbirds very well, so I wouldn't know the difference.

  2. Lovely image. I love to watch hummingbirds.
